: 100% Agreed.  The docs don't paint a clear architectural picture of the
: system, and nnimap is prone to confusing behavior, especially when used
: with the agent, if you have other mail clients.  Still, it's better than
: anything else I can find.  I just wish I really understood it.

The only thing I am missing in nnimap (of gnus) is that I can not
preview the email by partial downloading. A typical scenario is when I
got a email with 2M attachments, I can only read the few lines of text
after I download all the 2M attachments, which is very very slow...
