+to use this file:
+1) /tangle this file/ Run the =org-babel-tangle= command to extract
+ the code embedded in this file into a =gnu-gmail.el= file which can
+ be added to your configuration, and a =~/.authinfo= file which will
+ be used by gnus.
+
+2) /load this configuration/ If you have a recent version of Org-mode
+ (i.e. after 7.0) or are using the [[http://eschulte.github.com/emacs-starter-kit/][literate Emacs Starter Kit]], then
+ this file can be loaded directly using the =org-babel-load-file=
+ function, or by placing it in your load path (if you're using the
+ starter kit).
+
+ Alternately ensure that the =gnus-gmail.el= file generated by the
+ previous step is loaded by your configuration.
+
+3) /fire up gnus/ This can be done with the command =M-x gnus=
+
+4) /view your mail/ After gnus boots up you will see the "Group
+ Buffer" (see [[http://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/manual/html_node/gnus/index.html#toc_Group-Buffer][Group-Buffer]]). Each line is a mail "Group", hit
+ =SPACE= or =ENTER= on a group to view it's contents. You should
+ see an "INBOX" group which contains the mail in your gmail account.
+ If not, you can jump to the "INBOX" group by
+ - pressing =j= for "jump"
+ - tab completing the name "INBOX"
+ - pressing =U= for "unkill" meaning this will now always be
+ displayed in your Group buffer when you have new mail
+
+5) /customize/ Gnus has unrivalled capacity for customization. Once
+ your comfortable with basic usage, take some time to browse through
+ the very readable [[http://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/manual/html_node/gnus/index.html][Gnus Manual]] to learn untold tricks (see also
+ [[file:starter-kit-gnus.org::#customization][Starter-kit-gnus:Customizations]]).
