Hi
I am not having a lot of success

If I try RMAIL I get

Counting messages...done
Getting mail from the remote server ...
movemail: Permission denied for c:/Documents and Settings/David/Application Data/
(No new mail has arrived)

If I try gnus_no_server
it does not allow me access to the newgroups without reading 2MB of headers
If I do M-x gnus and wait fro 2Mb to download then ^ I get a nnfolder:archive
It should say nnfolder:mail.misc
If I click on nnfolder:archive it takes me to a buffer which is completely empty!


My .gnus.el is

  (setq user-full-name  "David R")
  (setq user-mail-address "address@hidden")


(setq rmail-primary-inbox-list `("po:address@hidden"))

(setenv "MAILHOST" "pop.tiscali.co.uk")
(setq rmail-primary-inbox-list
    '("po:address@hidden") rmail-pop-password-required t)


(setq smtpmail-default-smtp-server "smtp.tiscali.co.uk")
(setq smtpmail-local-domain nil)
(setq send-mail-function 'smtpmail-send-it)

(load-library "smtpmail")
(load-library "message")
(setq message-send-mail-function 'smtpmail-send-it)

;(setq smtpmail-debug-info nil)

;  {setq gnus-nntp-server 'nil)
     (setq gnus-select-method '(nntp "news.tiscali.co.uk"))
(add-to-list 'gnus-secondary-select-methods '(nntp "news.newnet.co.uk"))
     (add-to-list 'gnus-secondary-select-methods '(nntp "news.gnus.org"))

     (add-to-list 'gnus-secondary-select-methods '(nnfolder ""))

     (setq mail-sources '((pop :server "pop.tiscali.co.uk"
                               :user "address@hidden"
                               :password "<what it was>")))
