I have very setting: I use "fetchmail" to fetch mail from three
different accounts and then "procmail" automatically divides the mail to
different Maildir directories under ~/Maildir. The last rule in my
~/.procmailrc happens to be


So all my mails get delivered somewhere under ~/Maildir.

I don't know why but for some reason I need to have "nnml" method too
even though I don't actually use it. With that the mail system works. I
use customize system for configuration but basically my
gnus-secondary-select-methods is just this:

    '((nnml "")
      (nnmaildir ""
                 (directory "~/Maildir")))

I don't know but I think it's quite easy to miss many things with Gnus
configuration. :-)
