Yeah, personally I'd recommend a thread-handling mail reader like that, rather than digests. With digests you get fewer messages in your inbox, sure, but you can't easily delete the threads you don't care about and file the ones you want to keep. It's not more convenient, just more compact. Message threads are the problem and the solution - use software that deals with them the way you want to.

in that thread. If the email has already been read then it is
collapsed (you see only the sender subject and date).  I t is rather
handy. If I receive multiple emails in a conversation (gmail's term
for thread) thaat I am not interested in then I can delete the lot at
once. In any case the inbox only shows one entry for the entire
