AFAIK, the Emacs `auth-source' library used by Gnus does not understand
multiple users on the same domain, so it will be very tricky to use a
local IMAP configuration like the one you're describing.  Auth-source
expects a 1:1 correspondence between users and domains.

If, as I infer from your description of your local Dovecot setup, all of
these IMAP users are you, you'd probably be better off having all of
your remote IMAP accounts go to a single inbox on the Dovecot server.
You can use (info "(gnus) Posting Styles") to make sure that replies are
handled correctly for each remote IMAP user and mail-splitting or
server-side IMAP folders to make the deluge of mail easier to manage.
Multiple virtual users on Dovecot to handle one person's mail is not a
great solution.

Hope this helps,
