That's a feature of development gnusea. There the variable

,----[ C-h v mail-source-delete-incoming RET ]
| mail-source-delete-incoming is a variable defined in `mail-source.el'.
| Its value is nil
| Documentation:
| *If non-nil, delete incoming files after handling.
| If t, delete immediately, if nil, never delete.  If a positive number, delete
| files older than number of days.

is set to nil, so you won't loose any mail due to failures in the
further processing of gnus.
