Okay.  I haven't ever needed to know what my MUA was.  Other than
being able to answer this, "which MUA" question, I'm not sure how
much it matters.

I am using Gnus within Emacs.  What MUA?  There seem to be
conflicting answers.

If the above is the correct answer, then the "What MUA?" question
by Jeff had already been answered in that previous post.  But of
course, it seems then, that Alec's question would be a bit
incorrect as well.  Argghh...  Going round in circles.
