As Eli said: are you sure that server supports POP3?

Email servers have to deal with a lot of traffic.  Often ISPs
use different servers for SMTP and IMAP/POP.  My mail/webspace provider
does that.  If your moving over from another Email program then you
should be able to find the right address in it's settings.

POP can be tricky since by default the emails downloaded from the server
are deleted from the serve afterwards.  You may want to set
"rmail-preserve-inbox" to t while your debugging your setup.

If your email provider only supports IMAP you can use that if you
install the "movemail" from GNU Mailutils.
