and here is the applicable section from RFC822:

        Note: Though it is possible to specify a Content-Type value
        for a body part in a digest which is other than
        "message/rfc822", such as a "text/plain" part containing a
        description of the material in the digest, actually doing so
        is undesireble. The "multipart/digest" Content-Type is
        intended to be used to send collections of messages. If a
        "text/plain" part is needed, it should be included as a
        seperate part of a "multipart/mixed" message.
