When you read an article, you can fetch the thread with A T.

The "usual" way I handle this is to have Gnus not show articles I have
already read (i.e. the default). Then only articles listed are the new
ones. That makes it very clear what is new ;-) But you lose the context,
of course.

How did you get the clear idea with slrn?

This might not be useful to you eiter, but you can queue messages for
sending later - they will be stored in a different group than drafts,
and automatically sent at the time you specifify (or after the interval
you specify).

I really like that feature - maybe it can be adapted for you purpose?
