Hi,

What gnus method do you use?  With mail-sources you need `nnml'.  Also,
in those pop forms you may need to set :port too:

(pop :server foo :user bar :port 995)

Look-up if your host uses a non standard port.  Also, use Emacs
auth-source library for your passwords, it's not a good idea to keep
them in plain text (see info on auth).
