Try to split mails from you to that group. If it works,
after respooling, you can drop it as the mails should
go there anyway because of this line:

(setq gnus-message-archive-group '("nnml:mail.sent") )

That is, in my case:

(setq nnmail-split-methods
 '(("mail.sent" "^From: Emanuel Berg")
   ; ...
   ("mail.misc" "") ))

I suspect there is another, perhaps better way, but
what I can see that should work. (You might have to use
a more complicated regexp instead of just your name
depending on how consistent that header is.)

By the way, if you don't know about it, `B q' can be
more practical while testing - it just says where the
message would go, without actually moving it.
