You got it spot on. I want to break up the digest into component mails 
so that responding to a particular post becomes easier when the post has 
not been addressed/cc'ed to you, only to the list.

Following a google search based on your suggestion, I have this -
There is a Thunderbird add-on Undigestify which does that job by 
resending the mails individually to you.

So I have an answer there. Thanks for replying.
