I did say that it was a 'work-in-progress' :)
But it now says -

(setq gnus-select-method '(nnnil ""))
(add-to-list 'gnus-secondary-select-methods
                  '(nntp ""))
 (add-to-list 'gnus-secondary-select-methods '(nnml ""))
        (nnml-directory "~/.emacs.d/gnus.d/mail")
        (nnml-active-file "~/.emacs.d/gnus.d/mail/active")

But its failing to load in gnus because of the 'nnml-directory' and
'nnml-active-file' saying this in the 'message' buffer -

Opening nnml server...done
gnus-ask-server-for-new-groups: Wrong type argument: symbolp, (nnml "" 
(nnml-directory "~/.emacs.d/gnus.d/mail") (nnml-active-file 

So what I intend to do is to find out how I can move my present email
programme, claws-mail, from '~/Mail' to ~/Mail2', and then I can just
use nnml without specifying any directory as I will be using the
defaults. Complicated, but it should work.
