I have started with Gnus only recently, so I am not yet familiar with
all the features. As of my understanding it is only possible to browse
the server specified in the gnus-select-method but not in the
gnus-secondary-select-methods. Moreover, with the above method it is
possible to add folders from different imap services for the poor people
(like me) who have several email accounts.
