It sounds like it's related to the setting of one of these variables:

,----[ (info "(gnus)Mail Source Customization") ]
| `mail-source-delete-incoming'
|      If non-`nil', delete incoming files after handling them.  If `t',
|      delete the files immediately, if `nil', never delete any files.
|      If a positive number, delete files older than number of days (This
|      will only happen, when receiving new mail).  You may also set
|      `mail-source-delete-incoming' to `nil' and call
|      `mail-source-delete-old-incoming' from a hook or interactively.
| `mail-source-delete-old-incoming-confirm'
|      If non-`nil', ask for for confirmation before deleting old incoming
|      files.  This variable only applies when
|      `mail-source-delete-incoming' is a positive number.
