I decided to add some debug info into my .gnus.el file and it seems
that nnmaildir is not being loaded at all.  Here are the relevant
lines of debug code. It looks like it is reading the file with
nnfolder, and does not even use nnmaildir maybe something else needs
to be configured.
Reading /home/llacr/.newsrc.eld...
Reading active file from via nntp...
Reading active file from nnmaildir+llacrbox: via nnfolder...

I did try your suggestions, and will provide what my .gnus.el looks

;;; nnmaildir procmail settings
(add-to-list 'gnus-secondary-select-methods '(nnmaildir ""))
(setq gnus-select-method '(nnmaildir "llacrbox" (directory "~/
        mail-sources '((maildir :path "~/Maildir/" :subdirs ("cur"
        mail-source-delete-incoming t
(setq gnus-secondary-select-methods nil)
(setq gnus-message-archive-method "nnmaildir+llacrbox:"
           gnus-update-message-archive-method t
           gnus-message-archive-group '((if (message-news-p)
           "nnmaildir+llacrbox:sent-news" "nnmaildir+llacrbox:sent-
;;; NNTP Servers
(setq smtpmail-debug-info t)
(setq smtpmail-debug-verb t )
This is what I see in my server gnus buffer.

{nnfolder:nnmaildir+llacrbox:} (opened)
     {nndoc:gnus-help} (opened)
     {} (opened) (agent)

I did delete the .newsrc.eld file when I made the major changes as you
can see I don't even get the nnmaildir group to even click on.  But I
think it is due to the fact the nnfolder is doing all the work.  The
only reason I choose nnmaildir and Maildir, is the fact that is where
procmail, and fetchmail were depositing my messages.  I could tell
procmail to use the other folder but I was debating if dovecot would
be useful as I do have a gmail account which is imap capable.  I also
was using fetchmail before setting up procmail and fetchmail defaulted
to the Maildir and so I just followed procmail as well.

Thanks for all the suggestions so far I appreciate the time you take
to reply.
