It turns out, there *is* actually a way to do this in MailMate, I’ve 
found: the All Messages folder has an All Message Subparts sub-folder, 
in which each individual message from a digest appears. This seems to be 
a ‘special’ folder (in that I can’t see any setting in the Edit 
Mailbox view that makes it work like this, or a way to set up one of 
these in the Mailing Lists smart folder, for example), but it works — 
I can select an individual message and reply to it (like I am with this 

So either Benny implemented it and forgot about it :-), or it came for 
free as part of another feature. Either way, it works for me!
