Hello again Sébastien,

Brilliant! I did not know I had created a server with these commands,
I thought I had created a group (or set of groups) on localhost (as
server, although I did not think that far) and they would
auto-magically appear. You are absolutely right, doing ^ shows me

     {nnfolder:archive} (opened)
     {nndoc:gnus-help} (opened)
     {nnfolder:} (opened)
     {nndir:edu} (denied)
     {nnfolder:sent-mail} (opened)
     {nnml:} (opened)
     {} (opened) (agent)

which includes a couple of erroneous servers from previous
attempts. The nnfolder:sent-mail 'server' contains:

K      1: sent-to-martial-arts
K      3: sent-to-misc
K      1: sent-to-naval

which I promptly subscribed too. I will have to edit .newsrc.eld as
you advised in your reply to my other query, to remove the erroneous
entries. The whole process appears a bit opaque to me still, where to
look for things I created is easier though now, thanks to your advice.

Nice work, I learnt a lot looking at your .gnus file. Looks like you
decided not to define archive method, but specify nnml groups
directly. So gnus generates these for you when yo need them? And then
in your secondary sources you specify these archives as being part of
server nnml:archives (if I have the idea and terminology correct). You
also need to enter the server buffer to subscribe to these new groups?

As for nnfolder:archive, I think maybe this does not exist, if you did
not define archive method...

Thank you very much, your files are a study in progress for me now!
