OK! So perhaps I was right even though I didn't know
that. But - I quick Googling and that should probably
be "View Mail", right? "Visual Mail" is much more fun,
so actually that was a disappointment.

Here are some screenshots from View Mail:

I think my Gnus looks much better:

By the way, is "RMAIL" (caps only) the correct
designation for the Emacs module? Most often I think
the normal way of writing names - like Michael - should
be applied to software as well. UNIX, USENET, RMAIL, it
doesn't look good. There is a shell tool called rmail
(an "MTA->UUCP remote mail handle") but that's all
lowercase so it shouldn't be a source of confusion
(besides, I think rmail isn't on everyone's lips
either). In the sendmail.el documentation they used
Rmail.
