I've been using "vm" for a few months and am happy with it.  It's built into
standard (Solaris) Emacs, just type "M-x vm".  When R-help-digest appears,
right-click on the lower window and choose "Burst message as digest", then all
the individual messages are expanded as if they had been sent separately.
Here's my ~/.vm config file; see <http://www.wonderworks.com/vm/user-manual/>
for more details:

(setq vm-auto-get-new-mail 30)
(setq mail-archive-file-name (expand-file-name "~/Letter/me"))
(setq mail-signature t)
(setq mail-signature-file "~/.signature")
(setq vm-primary-inbox "~/Letter/INBOX")
(setq vm-delete-after-archiving t)
(setq vm-delete-after-saving t)
(setq vm-preview-lines nil)
(setq mail-default-reply-to "brahm at alum.mit.edu")
(setq user-mail-address "brahm at alum.mit.edu")
(setq vm-frame-parameter-alist '( (folder ((width . 120) (height . 65))) ))
(define-key menu-bar-tools-menu [rmail] '("Read Mail" . vm))
(define-key-after menu-bar-tools-menu [smail] '("Send Mail" . vm-mail) 'rmail)
