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.
