Never "manually" write to ~/Mail.  Gnus gets angry if you do that.
To create a "proper" folder, do this:

G m RET nnfolder: RET           (the ":" is important)
    (now you have an empty group
G f /path/to/old/mbox/file/outside/of/~/Mail RET
    (enter this group)
M P a                                   (mark all articles)
B c RET                (copy them to new group)

Repeat for all groups.
A preposition is not a good thing to end a sentence with.
