Ok i try to configure my GNU Emacs to read gmail email.
I saw on a web site that i have to put these line :

(add-to-list 'gnus-secondary-select-methods '(nnimap "gmail"
                                   (nnimap-address "")
                                   (nnimap-server-port 993)
                                   (nnimap-stream ssl))

So I've put it in .emacs
Now I have this error

Warning (initialization): An error occurred while loading

Symbol's value as variable is void: gnus-secondary-select-methods

To ensure normal operation, you should investigate and remove the
cause of the error in your initialization file.  Start Emacs with
the `--debug-init' option to view a complete error backtrace.

I'm a beginner in emacs mail... can anybody help me with a low level
(rookie) langage.

gnus-secondary-select-methods is not yet defined, when you are trying to add
the nnimap entry to its default value.

So put (require 'gnus) before the (add-to-list 'gnus-secondary-select-methods
...) form, or wrap the add-to-list form in (eval-after-load "gnus" (quote ...))
