Gnus has some distinct advantages over mutt. In particular, it has
superior imap support, especially offline support, which was the
primary reason I switched from mutt. Also, its newsreader focus makes
it great for reading mailing lists.
Also, it's more configurable than mutt, especially display-wise, if
you don't mind elisp...
Mutt is simple, light, fast, and just works for most people. But,
gnus does more tricks, if you're willing to train it. Anyone smell
