[Mailman-Users] Digest feature for pending moderator requests

I have two lists - ffml and ffml-admins - which I've noticed a slight
behavior difference.  On ffml-admins, I get a message once per day that
tells me that I have n>0 emails pending, and no emails on a per-email
received basis.  With ffml, however, every time a pending message is
held, the moderator team and I get an email for each - and there
hasn't been enough time at this point for the digest message. I just
turned this on, and it's going to get annoying really quick, as these
messages are almost invariably the result of spam*.

Long and short, ranting aside, how do I set up mailman so I don't get
an email for each of the held messages, instead getting that sort of
"digest" message?  I've combed through the web ui, but I can't seem to
find a relevant feature....


* I turned this feature on due to a sharp uptick in spam on this server
- my hope is to basically trap these for reporting to Spamcop, and to
reduce backscatter to nil.  At this point, at the current default
setting, backscatter is getting up to about two dozen per day trying to
get to servers that are refusing connection, and I can only imagine how
many are actually getting through.
