Take a look at the variable mail-sources - the default is to get it from
the local machine:

,----[ C-h v mail-sources RET ]
| mail-sources is a variable defined in `mail-source.el'.
| Its value is ((file))
| Documentation:
| Where the mail backends will look for incoming mail.
| This variable is a list of mail source specifiers.
| See Info node `(gnus)Mail Source Specifiers'.

How did you set up your select methods?

I did it by trial and error with stuff I found on the internet, not the best way
but I haven't found a one-site fits all GNUs site yet.

Thanks about the 'mail-source', I'm now investigating it.
