You're not alone! This is *probably* the nnml backend.

   (setq gnus-select-method '(nnml "nnml"))

That said I dont know for sure ;)

I mention it because the default is  ~/Mail.

But a point : despite using Gnus for a few years now I am not clear
on what "incoming mail" means in the context.  Possibly it looks in
/var/spool/mail. But since your mail is already there, I dunno. 

Best of luck!
