MH-E already handles attachments using gnus code, so I'll just find out
how it does what it does when no attachments are present.

Thanks.  I don't expect that MH-E will get users _from_ gnus, but we
might get users that find gnus a bit too complicated.  MH-E aims to be
easy to setup and use. But back in the day I started using email, stuff
like Evolution didn't exist!  So there's a crowd we'll never get.
Personally, I don't think programs like Outlook or Evolution scale to
500 messages a day.
