Some MUAs can "burst" a digest, but not many can. If done properly your inbox 
will look just as if you had received the messages individually.

I think some permutations of EMACS, and I think Pine, can do this. Others 
probably can do so as well, google around.

Most modern MUAs will allow you to automatically move everything from a list 
(like this one) to a specified directory thus making the high volume less of 
a problem perhaps, especially if you thread them. You still have to DL the 
same amount of info, even with a digest, unless the number of mails is the 
problem and not the total amount of data.

I'm not discouraging RSS feeds, they can certainly be useful.
