You didn't say what version of Gnus / Emacs you use, so your milage may
vary. Anyway:

Where did you get this variable name? As far as I can see, it is nowhere
in the Gnus source code.

Where did you find these variable names? I can't see them in

To me it looks like auth-sources is the variable to look at:

,----[ C-h v auth-sources RET ]
| auth-sources is a variable defined in `auth-source.el'.
| Its value is ("~/.authinfo" "~/.authinfo.gpg" "~/.netrc")
| Documentation:
| List of authentication sources.
| Each entry is the authentication type with optional properties.
| Entries are tried in the order in which they appear.
| See Info node `(auth)Help for users' for details.
| If an entry names a file with the ".gpg" extension and you have
| EPA/EPG set up, the file will be encrypted and decrypted
| automatically.  See Info node `(epa)Encrypting/decrypting gpg files'
| for details.
| It's best to customize this with `M-x customize-variable' because the choices
| can get pretty complex.
| You can customize this variable.
| This variable was introduced, or its default value was changed, in
| version 24.1 of Emacs.

Have you tried changing that?

  Best regards,
