Hmm, I couldn't imagine not using gnus, but for others I also
recommend mutt (though I'm no mutt expert).  If I get the time I might
post my gnus setup somewhere, but I imagine that Manoj's would be much

it better now that I've spoken to the gnu.emacs.gnus people and
figured out how the various expire/scoring/marking levels really

FWIW here's my current split setup:
