I tried to figure out what this options are doing, but didn't came up with anything :|

maillist_digest_enabled

Enable enhanced daily digest (provides topic snips in the digest)
maillist_imap_reason

The following should be left BLANK if you intend to pipe messages into the forum (recommended)
maillist_short_line

Short line length, used to unwrap emails

The first should be when people select to receive notifications once a day, they will receive with the list of topics/replies, also a piece of the message/s.

The other two is @Spuds' territory...
Bugs creator.
Features destroyer.
Template killer.

The "standard" digest the "inform me daily in notifications for boards / topics you are watching", only provides the subject in the email.  I think its something like a new topic was started in some topic subject some subject.
Enabling this also includes a short clip of the body text as well, and I think it will say if there are attachments available in the the post., plus some other small nice things.

Email posting is a complicated item.  
The best way is a  user sends an email to a defined site email address, that address then forwards it to a script (typically called piping) on the site.  This allows for it to be processed as soon as it arrives.
Some hosts do not have a way for users to set this up (its a normal CP function under email forwards / advanced).  For these cases we provide an IMAP function., you can use this to fetch, for example, email a from a site dedicated Gmail account.   This runs as a cron job so its every, say 5 mins or whatever you choose.  Its not as fast and since you are relying on additional things to happen, more prone to glitches.

Honestly I think I should remove that as an ACP option since Email is complicated enough :P ... Anyway email typically gets chopped up pretty badly since the plain text version of email will have wrapping added at 78-80 characters.  You often see a long line, short line, long line, short line ... when reading a plain text email.  We attempt to fix those such that when posting by email it looks like it was done on the site, meaning well formatted (within reason).   The number used here effects that processing (you don't want to unwrap a line where wrapping was intended).

I had added a wiki page some time ago, it may help answer some questions as well
