I would change to regular mode.  It is a lot easier to navigate, save what you want and reply to what you want.  This way, only the current e-mail will be included with your reply.

Well, you have found the major disadvantage of digest mode for blind persons.  Most of us "top post" which means you reply to a message, and put your reply at the top.  People who get regular mode just read the top message, in a string, and a little more if it is new to them, or they don't remember. then delete and move on.  In digest mode you get strings of strings of messages and it is confusing.  There may be a unique word like From: at the beginning of each string, I don't remember, and you could search for that.

Most of us read in regular mode because it is easier.
