I posted this for reason of excitement and only after I read a little
manual. I realized some features are implemented already after I read more.

I still think it's useful. I dont mean "importing the body of email". I
just wanna have a way to display it temporarily below the link and not
save to Org file.

You  know I realized this after. ;-p

I understand. Just I think it's possible since Gnus can do this in
summary buffer. There must be a way to do this using Gnus  functions directly.

I am not trying. I am using it for work. Though my org file seems really
messy owing to my limited knowledge. But it doesn't matter. My
philosophy is "Use it if I like, use it better and if possible make it
Org is really fun and powerful.
IIRC Org can not export to texinfo by itself. I may learn to use Muse
with Org.

Thank you, and kudos to Org. I really like it. It's starting to change
my life.
