mail/news client in Emacs

GNUS (Gnus Network User Services) is an Emacs package primarily designed for reading and posting Usenet news. It can also be used to read and respond to messages from a number of other sources—email, remote directories, digests, and so on.

This package provides a full-featured, robust, well-documented mail/news client in Emacs.

Gnus is maintained as part of GNU Emacs.


To get into the Gnus Info manual, and any other info manual, run in Emacs:

C-h i

This will go to the top level of the info system. Then go to node Gnus

An online version of the manual is available at:
