Thank you.

(setq gnus-select-method '(nntp ""))
(setq gnus-secondary-select-methods
          '((nnml "mail")
        (nnimap "asdf"
                                (nnimap-address "localhost")
                                (nnimap-server-port 143)
                                (nnimap-stream network))))

and mail-sources is nil

I had a thought that it might be defaulting to reading /var/mail/user. So, as a 
test, I set:

(setq nnmail-spool-file '("/var/mail/empty"))

where /var/mail/empty is an empty file, with appropriate permissions
and ownership. But it still empties my imap inbox. The email seems to
go into ~/Mail/Incomingxyz.

Before that, I had:

(setq nnmail-spool-file nil)
(setq nnmail-get-new-mail nil)

and got the inbox emptied, but mail is copied to nnml inbox.
