They will receive no mail at all. They are set to 'digest' so they don't
receive individual messages, and the list's digestable is No so no
digests will be produced.

If you change a list from digestable = Yes to No and there are digest
members, you will be warned of this. If the list is already digestable =
No, and you try to set a member to digest via the admin UI "Membership
Management" page, the change is silently ignored.
