Angry Telnet - No address associated with hostname


I have fedora 22, networks works fine I can browse internet, I can ping....
Recently, I setup evolution email client, whenever I do "send/Receive" I get an error saying
Code:
Error while Fetching....Error resolving "mypop.domain.fr. No address associated with hostname.
Reading some articles on this side for similar issues, one recommended to do a telnet, here I discovered that doing
Code:
telnet mypop.domain.fr 110
sends back the same error

I run the exact same telnet commend from a windows machine n the ame subnet, same DNS, same gateway, it works fine telnet and pop, smtp protocol.
I checked fedora firewall, PO3s is checked in the public zone.
Am I missing something?
N.B : while I was checking firewall, I noticed that it is POP3s not POP3, is it the same thing or should it be POP3 and there is something wrong in my setup?
Thanks for your help

Telnet - No address associated with hostname

maybe try dig or nslookup
are you sure that's a valid name address?

Try a traceroute (tracert on Windows) and pipe the output to files, then compare the two files. That might give you some clues as to where the connection is failing.

You may have to use the "m" argument with traceroute. See man traceroute for more.

I think this is related to DNS issue.

It basically had to be "a DNS issue." To resolve any address, the system looks at /etc/hosts and then it starts issuing requests to a list of DNS servers. That's how "linuxquestions.org" gets resolved to an IP-address of one of its servers.
