The folder feel in Notmuch Emacs comes from named searches. They look
like folders and have user-chosen names except that they really trigger
configured searches.

Obviously you choose what is comfortable for you and Gnus is an
excellent choice. I just wanted to say that I like folder interface too.
The difference between Notmuch Emacs and concrete folder systems is that
in Notmuch the actual mail files don't need to be in similar concrete
file system directories.
