   This is the Gnus Frequently Asked Questions list.
   
   Gnus is a Usenet Newsreader and Electronic Mail User Agent implemented
   as a part of Emacs. It's been around in some form for over 6 years
   now, and has been distributed as a standard part of Emacs for much of
   that time. Gnus 5 is the latest (and greatest) incarnation. The
   original version was called GNUS, and was written by Masanobu UMEDA.
   When autumn crept up in '94, Lars Magne Ingebrigtsen grew bored and
   decided to rewrite Gnus.
   
   Its biggest strength is the fact that it is extremely customizable. It
   is somewhat intimidating at first glance, but most of the complexity
   can be ignored until you're ready to take advantage of it. If you
   receive a reasonable volume of e-mail (you're on various mailing
   lists), or you would like to read high-volume mailing lists but cannot
   keep up with them, then you definitely want to investigate Gnus for
   reading mail.
   
   This FAQ is maintained by Justin Sheehy. I would like to thank Steve
   Baur and Per Abrahamsen for doing a wonderful job with this FAQ before
   me.
   
   If you have a Web browser, the official hypertext version is at:
   <URL:http://www.ccs.neu.edu/software/contrib/gnus/> . This version is
   much nicer than the unofficial hypertext versions that are archived at
   Utrecht, Oxford, Smart Pages, Ohio State, and other FAQ archives. See
   the resources question below if you want information on obtaining it
   in another format.
   
   The information contained here was compiled with the assistance of the
   Gnus development mailing list, and any errors or misprints are my
   (Justin Sheehy's) fault, sorry.
