A less popular, but working way is to download mail via IMAP as you
would do via POP.  Like that:

(setq mail-sources '((imap :server "yourserver.com" 
                           :user "address@hidden" 
                           :stream tls)))

(setq gnus-select-method '(nnnil ""))

(setq gnus-secondary-select-methods
      '((nnfolder "mailserver"
                  (nnfolder-directory "~/mailfolder"))))

See also (info "(gnus) Mail Source Specifiers").

File ~/.authinfo.gpg will contain credentials:

`machine yourserver.com login address@hidden password <secret>'.

Variable `nnmail-split-methods' directs client-side splitting.
