you should change this, this is your imap folder, gnus should not use it

Here is a minimal example of what you need:

(setq gnus-select-method '(nntp "YOUR NNTP SERVER"))
(setq gnus-secondary-select-methods '((nnimap "PUT A NAME HERE IF YOU LIKE"
(nnimap-address "YOUR IMAP SERVER")
(nnimap-server-port 143); not necessary as this port is the default
(nnimap-authinfo-file "/home/user/.authinfo") ;useful if you want
automatic authentication
)))
Then you will have to subscribe to the boxes procmail has created with "U"
(when connected to your server)
