The digests come as attachments, is this OK? How do I open them?

If the digest is long, AOL forces it as an attachment..
These attachments are simply text files and are very safe to download and open.

Click "download now".
A pop up box will come up, asking where you want to save it. Make that decision, either your AOL download folder or the My Documents folder are good choices.
When the file is done downloading, another popup comes asking if you would like to locate this file now. Choose YES.
The folder it was downloaded to will open, locate the file in there and double click to open.

Since your computer does not know what to do with a file called "Digestfo", or something like that, you need to prompt it. When that next popup comes asking what program to use to open this file, scroll down and choose either NotePad or WordPad and voila there you go.
