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'.
How come?

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 ""))

, but when I start gnus I get the error message:

Unable to open, go offlline? (y or n)

. Could you please be more clear?
