Sure, but let's be clear on what's happening.

You start up Gnus.  Then you are asked for what password?  You enter it;
what's in *Messages*?

You are asked again for what password?  You enter it again, what's new
in *Messages*?

The exact prompts and sequence of events are important.  I also need to
know your authinfo contents, suitably edited to keep your info private.
