If you want other programs than Gnus to handle your emails on disk, you
should not choose nnml, because Gnus assumes that it "owns" everything
in that case.

If that is fine with you, then I think nnml should be the default choice.

(The alternative, if that isn't fine with you, is probably nnmaildir,
which - as far as I understand - assumes that the files are shared
between multiple programs.)

  Best regards,
