The mechanism of nnml made me such impression.

Thank you very much.

There is another problem. If I use 

;; Tell gnus which method to use for archives (nnfolder) 
(setq gnus-message-archive-method 
           '(nnfolder "archive" 
                 (nnfolder-directory "~/.emacs.d/gnus/Mail/archive") 
                 (nnfolder-active-file "~/.emacs.d/gnus/Mail/archive/active") 
                 ;; (nnfolder-get-new-mail nil) 
                 (nnfolder-inhibit-expiry t))) 

all buffers related to gnus will be read only. Why does it happen?
