Although gnus is billed as the standard emacs news reader, it's also a mail reader -- basically it makes an MH mail folder look like a news spool directory (which it really does anyway). The preferred backend adds a
.overview database so it can track message IDs.
The current version of gnus handles MIME attachments (launching helper apps as needed). There is also a wide variety of backends including an RSS reader and a reader for mailing lists archived on the web. Have to try that soon.
