I create a new group and activate both total and auto expiration in its
but when I evaluate the above expression it turns out to be 'nil'.

If I do 'C-h v' for it, it says:
gnus-newsgroup-name is a variable defined in `gnus.el'.
Its value is ""
Local in buffer *mail*; global value is nil
Not documented as a variable.

I put in my .gnus.el the following:
(setq gnus-select-method '(nntp "news.example.com"))
, but when I start gnus I get the error message:
Unable to open nntp:news.example.com, go offlline? (y or n)
. Could you please be more clear?
