Tutorial screencasts for Emacs

Gnus Part 2

| Comments

This is the second part of the screencasts discussing Gnus. The general idea was to cover “reading” email and news articles but the screencast ended becoming 30 minutes long. I broke it down into two pieces so that it’s more convenient to download.

It discusses the Group buffer where you can see your groups and manage them, the Summary buffer where you can actually see the articles in the group and finally, the Article buffer where you can actually read the email.
