`nnfolder-directory' got its default value from `message-directory'.
It's not clear whether you want to separate "archive" directory or you
don't want to have the whole "~/Mail" dir. If the latter, try
(setq message-directory "~/.emacs.d/Mail") in your .emacs.

I also wanted to write that you can check your "~/.newsrc.eld", but i've
just found that i have (nnfolder-directory "~/Mail/archive") in
`gnus-server-alist' there (and i don't use this default value either).
So it's not the point i think.
