I'm not positive, but to get pop over SSL you need an enhanced pop3.el
file for gnus, which I need for fetching my mail from gmail.  Try
looking at http://www.emacswiki.org/cgi-bin/wiki/GnusGmail; there's a
link in the 3rd paragraph to a site that contains an updated pop3
library with instructions on how to install it. 

Hope this helps.
