I am using slrn and it works OK for me.  I have experimented a little
bit with gnus, but never got it to work either for mail or newsgroups.
Maybe I was just too impatient to study all the configuration
detail. Maybe there is an easy way that I do not know of.  Slrn with
slrnpull works without much configuration problems.

Another one you can consider is leafnode which is also not difficult
to configure.

Just a question to the gnus-people: Can you use gnus to read
newsgroups offline like I do with slrnpull and slrn --spool?
