Can you show us the exact elisp?

You need something like:

(setq rmail-primary-inbox-list
   '("pop://hengaini2055:address@hidden:995"))

Notice the ' at the start because this is a list containing one entry.

Many email servers don't accept simple usernames anymore, the domain has
to be added onto them.  Here your username is just "hengaini2055". It
may be necessary to add a domain to that.  It is with my email
provider.  If you're already using an email program then you can find
out how it's written by looking in it's configuration.

If that doesn't work, ask again, there are other things to try.

BR,
