I found gnus/emacs baffling at first.  I was using elm and tin for a long
time.  I gave gnus a try but was overwhelmed.  I switched to mutt and
slrn which I used for a couple of years.  Using procmail to split your
mail and mutt to read it is a good solution.  I think it may best for
someone who uses a fast starting non-emacs editor, e.g., vi.

Fwiw, slrn has borrowed heavily from gnus so moving from slrn to gnus
is not as bad as going from tin to gnus.
