Great, I had success for this, I followed your guide:

But I used this in my .gnus file:

(setq gnus-select-method
      '(nnimap "OPENMAILBOX"
               (nnimap-stream network)
               (nnimap-address "localhost")
               (nnimap-authenticator login)
               (nnimap-user "address@hidden")))

Is there any guide for that?

Any way of letting Gnus do this automatically?
