I use "the other" Japanese eMail client: Mew (

My opinion:

Love it because of its good IMAP and gpg/mailcrypt support and
robustness. Started my annual sorting of mail. 14000 in one go on a slow
machine. Mew worked all night without failing.

I use GNUS for News but prefer Mew for eMail because it comes with sensible
defaults. You can customise a lot, but you don't have to---which to my taste
you must with GNUS. Good manual.

Emacs includes mh-e, tried it when looking for a new client. I decided to use
Mew but I don't remember what I disliked about mh-e. Happy with it since 99 or
