In the server buffer I do not see groups, I see the following two

     {nnfolder:archive} (closed)
     {nnimap:mail} (opened) (agent)

When I go to the second line, and hit SPC, I see:
K    618: INBOX
K      0: Mail/archive
K      0: Mail/drafts

When I go to the first line and hit SPC I can see the mail messages in
my inbox.

Then, if I go back to the groups buffer, it allows me to subscribe to

       0: nndraft:queue
       0: nndraft:drafts
     618: nnimap+mail:INBOX

So that seems good. But the next time I open GNUS this group is not
there, and I have to go back to the server buffer and read the email
through that.

So how do I get this INBOX group to stick around?

I will discuss with my sysadmin and see what he has to say about what
the IMAP server exposes...
