    That error looks like a timeout. Typically that means you are using the wrong protocol, host name or port.
    For Gmail (including google apps) you need:

    • protocol: pop3-ssl
    • Use Transport Layer Security: No
    • server: pop.gmail.com
    • port: 995
    • userid: your full email addres
    • password: your password

    You also need to go to your Gmail settings and enable POP3 access as this is turned off by default.

    The other big reason for a timeout is that your hosting company is blocking the port.

    Thanks but settings are correct so I think I must open something in my apache web server but what?

    Ok, solved installing php5-imap on the server 😉
    Thanks.
