You can use the programm you like. I use xemacs with gnus as mail-,
newsreader, editor, notes, html, code ..
I didn't find any other program which have the same features as xemacs
and gnus. I tested spruce, balsa, pan and other gnome programs, but i
always returned to xemacs.

Ther are a lot of better news- and mailreader than netscape. Netscape is
a browser, not a mail- and newsreaer. ;-)
I don't want to start a quarrel with other users, using netscape or any
other gnome reader, that's my own opinion.
