You may need to modify your firewall configuration or disable it. To enable HTTPS you need to allow traffic on port 443. To enable POP3 you need to enable 110.

The firwall configurator can be found in SuSE by opening the YaST control panel, go to security, and then you will see a button for the firewall.

Thumbs down Re: opening ports

I tried both allowing those ports and turning the firewall off altogether. but i still get the same error messages. it seems form the error messages that the computer is managing to try to connect to these services and is being refused
this is the message i get when i try to contact my college webmail:

could this problem be caused by something such as SSL not being installed or turned off?

you probably aren't running a pop service

type

netstat -tna

and see if there is something listening on port 110
most likely there isn't and you need to install a pop service
like qpopper
