Port 995 is for SSL/TLS connections.

Use Pop3.ConnectSSL method instead of Pop3.Connect.

Please also not that as this is a standard POP3 port, there is no need to specify it at all:

using(Pop3 pop3 = new Pop3())
    pop3.ConnectSSL("pop.gmail.com");   // <-- Use SSL/TLS on 995

    pop3.UseBestLogin("user", "password");

    List<string> uids = pop3.GetAll();
    foreach (string uid in uids)
        var eml = pop3.GetMessageByUID(uid);
        IMail email = new MailBuilder().CreateFromEml(eml);

        string subject = email.Subject;

If you plan to use POP3 with Gmail those 2 articles may help:



If you want to have a greater control over your emails you may want to switch to IMAP protocol.
