For importing a maildir folder, you have to have set up the mail
backend, nnml, as a primary or secondary source of mail like this:

(add-to-list 'gnus-secondary-select-methods 
                  '(nnml ""))

After that, you specify that you own a maildir folder setting a source
for nnml:

(setq mail-sources
      (maildir :path "Path/to/your/folder"
                :subdirs ("cur" "new"))
