FAQ
hi there,

i want to edit part of the email that gets sent out as a daily digest...
specifically to remove the text at the top with all the list details about
how to send to the list, etc... i'm using this as an 'announcement only'
list and i don't want people to be able to access that information.

ive searched all through the faqs and other documentation and couldn't find
any reference to this.

hoping someone on the list can point me in the right direction? im using
mailman that came with our hostgator account, version 2.1.9

thanks!

    The digest boilerplate is in the template masthead.txt. See the FAQ at
    <http://www.python.org/cgi-bin/faqw-mm.py?req=show&file=faq04.048.htp>
    for information on editing templates.

    You will probably need the assistance of your host to install an edited
    template for your list.

    However, if this is an announcement list, why allow digests at all? If
    you set Digest options->digestable to No and turn off 'digest' for
    your current digest members, you won't care what the digest masthead
    says. (You may also need to set digest_is_default to Regular.)

    If you are posting so many announcements that digesting is desirable,
    perhaps you should consider batching them into fewer posts.
