Use a different mail client that doesn't do this. Otherwse, there's
nothing you can do to control what users mail clients do.

There is no change to the digests themselves that would mitigate this
issue without breaking the way the original digests render.

Further, people shouldn't be replying to a digest. For a MIME format
digest, they should open the individual message and reply to that. For
the plain digest, they should just copy/paste relevant context from the
digest into a new post to the list. Of course, training list members to
do that is probably not possible ...
