To be honest I said it because I used to get everything "prepared"
before really using it. When I was in bachelor I spent all my spare time
within a week reading Emacs's documentation. I read almost everything.

It was not a good idea.

As for Gnus, I do not think 30 lines will give you a satisfying
experience compared with other alternatives. I tried. Maybe it was just
me.

But it has so many concepts related to good old new groups, instead of
mails. I do not think it is a good idea to recommend it to beginners.

Anyway, you have the choices.
