Francis, I think Shal came up with a viable solution. Don't know if Mark will use it, but hopefully he will.

Go back through the messages and find that one from Shal, I know it was late yesterday (Saturday) that he sent it.

Subject: Re: [beta] Delivery Options
I just looked at the “join” page for a group.
There are radio buttons for the top options (all email, first email, etc.) and a checkbox for daily digest.
You are obliged to select a radio button. You may opt to tick the checkbox for daily digest.
That is confusing. Perhaps a box around the Daily Digest section?

Can you detail for us what you did wrong? A little background on the confusion might go a long way to helping Mark make the options clearer.I already had an owner email address subscribed to All Mail. The problem arose when I subscribed another email address to receive the Digest. I ticked the Digest Box and I was forced to select one of the options above -so I ticked No Email. When no Digest arrived, I thought there was a bug, but it was my own fault.
It would also help me understand if the separation of Email Delivery from Message Selection that dg and I proposed is (sufficiently) clearer.With all due respect, I found your suggestion so confusing, it motivated me to express my desire for simplicity.
Would it help if you were able to control the default Subscription If what you meant was that I could select these mail options for my members' default, I'm all for it (KISS):
options your members get when they join? cf my other suggestion
All messages as single emails
No Mail except Special Notices
