Do you mean the MIME digests produced by mailman ? I totally disagree, 
they are one of the best features.

Subscribing in digest mode allows me to receive one cumulative post per 
day (about, unless there is more traffic) and deal with them not 
interrupting my other activities.

A proper MUA shall allow to read each message in the digest as if it were 
a single e-mail (and reply, archive, forward etc. etc.).

In the case of my MUA (Alpine) I've programmed it so that a single 
keystroke (for me it is capital D) will expand the digest in a temporary 
folder where I deal with individual messages.
