Question 4.5

How can I change the headers Gnus displays by default at the top of the article buffer?

Answer

The variable gnus-visible-headers controls which headers are shown, its value is a regular expression, header lines which match it are shown. So if you want author, subject, date, and if the header exists, Followup-To and MUA / NUA say this in ~/.gnus.el:

     (setq gnus-visible-headers
           '("^From" "^Subject" "^Date" "^Newsgroups" "^Followup-To"
             "^User-Agent" "^X-Newsreader" "^X-Mailer"))
