 How do I move from getting every single posting to just a daily

 need space for other things.  Can someone help me stem the tide just a bit?
 
The trouble with digest is that it doesn't let you thread email,
so it's hard to follow a conversation (at least, I find it hard).
You might find you get the best of both worlds by creating a filter for
gimp-user and redirecting all mail for this list to its own folder.
That way, your inbox remains uncluttered but conversations remain listed
in a logical order.

I filter on [To or CC = [EMAIL PROTECTED]

simple to break a digest into individual emails if you desire.  Use
procmail:
  formail -ds procmail  file.txt
  -s (split digest or xx), pipe a file back into system as if just rec'd
  -d Tell formail that the messages it is supposed to split need not be
 in strict mail-box format

formail is part of procmail.

I think you need to go:
https://lists.xcf.berkeley.edu/mailman/listinfo/gimp-user

Scroll down, click 'Unsubscribe or Edit Options', and then change to
digest mode.

Or, if you'd like I'll send you a gmail invite - it's pretty good with
lists, and you have almost 3 GB of space... (I don't work for google -
I just like gmail for lists)
