Maybe your library is blocking access to TCP/110 (POP3)?  What happens 
if you type "telnet <ip-for-gmail-pop> 110" (without the "")? If it 
times out or you get a connection refused, your library doesn't want you 
accessing it.  If you get a welcome banner, you're connected and there 
is a configuration problem in Evolution.
