You can also do this from .emacs, IIRC.  (server-start) ?  Sorry I don't
use Gnu EMacs nowadays.

The other really nice add-on for mutt/slrn with the emacsen is post.el !
Put it in your load-path, compile it and put (require 'post) in .emacs.
It gives you message highlighting, quote-stripping, selectable signatures
and a variety of other useful functions.


It makes mail/news without Gnus just about bearable - but only just!
