1. Which RFC describes digests---standards for message separators,
end of file, etc? Where can I find it, on the web?
2. Any idea why a plain ascii text message with no signature,
no lines of hyphens or any other character, would truncate
our list digests, on some subscribers' email systems?
Every message this subscriber writes, triggers this phenomenon.
Only her messages trigger it.
The majority of subscribers receive "whole" digests, even with
her message. Those of us whose digests are truncated use
different email clients (Eudora Pro, Netscape Navigator 3.04)
on different ISPs (AT&T, Best.com, NetWiz.net). For us, the
digest ends at the end of her message. All messages after hers,
are missing. No list footers, either, of course.
The digest truncation occurred following her posts on two lists
using different list automation software, on different provider
Typical message below, in case that helps...

Step 10 is a way to continue to grow and take responsiblity...
