>>>      "nnimap+That-Account:Sent")))
If all `cond' does not match, where will the `archive' message go?
(for example, just write a new mail by `m' without enterning any
group. Just stay on the start `Group' buffer)

I know the default is `archive' on local disk. But this line:
>>> (setq gnus-message-archive-group #'my-archiver-figure-outer)
prevents un-matched sent items archived locally.

Should I add a condition:

   ((string-match-p ".*" group)

  Like this?

Who am I? Where am I from? Where am I going?
