Gnus is probably the one to look for. You should have it already
installed, and it does both mail and news. Just start it with "M-x
gnus". It's quite difficult to configure at first but I'd like to
encourage you to learn it because Gnus is really excellent. For
documentation see:

    C-h i m Gnus RET

For configuration I'd say the customize interface is quite nice:

    M-x customize-group RET gnus RET

(RET means Enter in the Emacs speak)

There is also newsgroup gnu.emacs.gnus if you need help. If you end up
using Gnus for mail it's probably a good idea to set it the default mail

    M-x customize-option RET read-mail-command RET
    M-x customize-option RET mail-user-agent RET
