The clue is POP3 and Secure(SSL). In the "Advanced" tab for the account check the box for incoming (pop3) mail being "secure". That will change the incoming mail port to 995. Since you're unable to send also, there is also a checkbox for the outgoing (smtp) mail being secure. There are more options on the "server" tab as well, so it's a good idea to look for a set of instructions provided by olagola about all the proper mail settings.
