That variable is only about ~/Mail/Incoming* files. It's not about mail
on a remote POP/IMAP server.

If your Gnus downloads your mail from POP3 or IMAP server you should
read info page "(gnus) Mail Source Specifiers". For POP3 the variable is
pop3-leave-mail-on-server. For IMAP it seems to be ":dontexpunge t" flag
with the imap mail-source specifier . I have never used either of these
options so I'm not really sure how they work. (I use /usr/bin/fetchmail)
