The Emacs manual is your main friend.  If you decide to go with Gnus
(as opposed to Rmail, which is described in the Emacs manual), you
will need to read the Gnus manual as well.  The Gnus manual is part of
the Emacs distribution.

The Emacs manual describes the `icalendar' package in the node
"Importing Diary".  It sounds like what you want is supported by that
package; please take a look.
