I also had a problem trying to use Rmail. I wanted to use Rmail  as it
is what's shipped with Emacs (Gnus I also failed with). I wanted to
use Rmail remotely reading Gmail servers which seems the best way to
me when using Linux (Xubuntu) as one has the 6 month releases. Stunnel
seemed the problem but now Emacs 24 has it built in I am going to try
again.
