I am afraid I am answering the question you asked, but maybe not exactly
the one you meant to ask... Just seems too easy for me to be right.

Anyway, the mail spool location is most likely set in your .gnus.el
file.  Here is what mine looks like:

(setq gnus-select-method '(nntp "newsgroups.comcast.net"))
(setq gnus-secondary-select-methods 
      '((nnml "")))
;;      this for an old acct...
;;	(nnimap "mtsu"
;;		(nnimap-address "imap.mtsu.edu")
;;		(nnimap-list-pattern "~/Mail/*")
;;		(nnimap-need-unselect-to-notice-new-mail t)
;;		(nnimap-authinfo-file "~/authinfo.imap"))))

(eval-after-load "mail-source"
  '(add-to-list 'mail-sources '(file :path "/var/mail/rdc")))

(eval-after-load "mail-source"
  '(add-to-list 'mail-sources 
		'(pop :server "pop.gmail.com"
		      :port 995
		      :user "robdcraw"
		      :password "************"
		      :connection ssl
		      :leave t)))

I included a little more than you asked for, just in case I didn't
answer your real question.  Maybe some of this will lead you down the
correct path.

You should probably have a look in the gnus info manual.  It is very
nice, if a little quirky.
Take care,
