As Gary says, this server requires SSL and that's something Telnet does not
do. I'd say your best bet is to talk to someone at GMail, tell them what
you need to do, and see if they have any recommendations.

Thanks for the reply. I am trying to retrieve emails from
pop.gmail.com for my project purpose. Actually, my basic requirement
is to write a PL/SQL code for retrieving emails from the gmail POP
server for which I want to see the general mail format by telnet
commands. So is there any way by which I can view the contents of the
emails viz. telnet commands or any other way ?
