How would you make it easier for nonprogrammers to set up gnus email ?... What's available on the web currently still requires knowledge that once it's set up that knowledge isn't critical to operating gnus email.

For example, I've set up gnus newsgroups. Now, how do I get gnus email set up?... Step by step instructive comments are needed that can be followed by nonprogrammers unfamiliar with the jargon.

Oops...I posted a reply instead of a new comment. Duh! So...How do you handle spam messages that are uuencoded? We are noticing that the spammers have caught on to the word and phrase based delivery rules which we use to eliminate spam. To thwart the delivery rules, they uuencode their messages. Is there a way to first decode the message then pass it to their delivery rules

Minor correction about regular expressions: A period (.) means "any character" not "any number of the following character." A star (*) means "any number of the _previous_ character".

I've been using Gnus for about a year. I thought this article was a good general overview of Gnus. Thanks!

I've been using Gnus since 95/96, and have lately tried to get away from it. You know what? It's impossible! I've yet not found any other mail/news client that gives me the same flexibility as Gnus have. Sure, most of the other are better looking, but they dont have the same feature richness as Gnus.

Linux Backup and Recovery Webinar

Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
