Hi Carsten;

Thanks for the help. I've poked around inside the "browse-url" group
(it's been a long time since I've seen "mosaic" and "netscape" listed as
options), but I cannot find "mail-user-agent." So -- and remembering
that, like an increasing number of org users, I am not a programmer -- is
this a variable that I could specify in .emacs, for example? I do know how to
modify that file and already have various "setq..." type of entries.
But, just to prove that I am not a programmer, here's what I would try:

(setq 'mail-user-agent' 'gnus-user-agent')

Which, of course, causes emacs to choke (or, at least to grumble.)
