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.
