I don't think there is a better way and this is also why I dislike the 
“digest” option for anything but read-only usage.

I was going to write that there is no formal digest format, but it 
appears an [RFC](https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc1153) actually describes 
a somewhat standard format. If the `Message-ID` is provided for each 
message then the problem appears to be that MailMate is not smart enough 
to handle these digest messages. When replying to a digest message then 
MailMate should identify its subparts and ask the user which one to 
reply to. It should then setup the correct subject line, in-reply-to 
header, skip the subject-warning, etc.
