I'm glad you're back. I like getting each message on its own, but many people much prefer the digests. It keeps your mailbox much neater.

There was some talk about this before, but I can't find it in the archives. Someone said it was the first part of a saying: "The postman always rings twice, but opportunity only knocks once."

Discussing more than one thing in a message is perfectly fine.
