I'm a Gnu Emacs fan so I would recommend using gnus within Emacs.
I also recommend using Emacs 20.x instead of 21.x. Both come with
gnus as part of the package. Ver. 21 has a bunch of chrome that
annoys me. (And xemacs annoys me too. Xemacs isn't
Gnu-Emacs-using-X-Windowing-system; it's a fork in development with a
different attitude. Gnu Emacs will run on a console, in an xterm or
in its own X window.)
Way back when I first started with Emacs (as a theretofore -- gasp! --
CP/M guy) I found it intimidating but I read the whole (printed)
manual all the way through once and that helped a whole bunch. YMMV,
different strokes... etc. etc.
