Do you mean digestable as in
Can list members choose to receive list traffic bunched in digests?

Assuming you meant 'digestable', yes.

The setting is there, but it can't be set to Yes if digestable is No.
If you have sufficient access to the server, you can copy
/path/to/lists/LISTNAME/en/options.html and remove the part
<strong>Set Digest Mode</strong><p>
If you turn digest mode on, you'll get posts bundled together
(usually one per day but possibly more on busy lists), instead
of singly when they're sent. If digest mode is changed from
on to off, you may receive one last digest.
and maybe the following part
<strong>Get MIME or Plain Text Digests?</strong><p>
Your mail reader may or may not support MIME digests. In
general MIME digests are preferred, but if you have a problem
reading them, select plain text digests.
from the /path/to/lists/LISTNAME/en/options.html template (or place
'comment' tags around them). See the FAQ at
<http://wiki.list.org/x/4030605> for more on template editing.
It is arguably a bug to display these settings on the options page if
the list is not digestable and the user's digest setting is not Yes. If
you file a bug at <https://bugs.launchpad.net/mailman/+filebug>, I'll
consider fixing it.
