This depends on digest format and your MUA. If you set your digest
format to MIME rather than Plain, the digest will be sent with the
individual messages as message/rfc822 parts within a multipart/digest

Then it is up to your MUA (mail client) to understand this format and
allow you to reply to an individual message. Some do and some don't.
