I use MIME for digest reading, with KMail under SuSE 9.2. The way I get the digest is a list of encapsulated messages. There is, however, a tedious things: the encapsulated messages are not numbered... (so I still have to scroll down to find a particular message, guessing the right place where it might be; odd enough, there is no "Find text" inside a message in KMail).

If there's any option in KMail to split the digest into threaded messages, I couldn't find it. I tried to figure out how to use procmail and formail but is too complex for a regular user.

Is it possible to get numbered encapsulated messages? TIA,
