This is the problem.  Use the Compose Mail link instead.  The address is simple:
satlug at satlug.org.  When I type in satlug, gmail automatically detects what I 
want and fills in the rest.

This does not use threading, but threading is not really appropriate for 
messages from digest mode.

These steps are good.

You could also disable digest mode.  That is really there (IMO) for people who 
really just want to read and not post much.
