If you're talking about section 2.4, replace the sentence "Messages in
the incoming queue may also be stored for appending to digests." with
"Messages in the incoming queue are finally stored in the outgoing queue
for distribution to regular members and added to a digest.mbox for
eventual distribution to digest members."

There really isn't more to say at that level.

For more detail about how outgoing messages are handled, see
