unable to connect using IMAP and a endless loop

Hi,

I am trying to connect to my gmail account using com.sun.mail ..... Mail api.
I am using mail api version 1.4.2 - mail_1.4.2.jar
Now I am trying to connect with following details as :
username : username@gmail.com
password : some password (correct password)
host : imap.gmail.com
post : 993
SSL : false

But when I try to execute session.connect(host,port,username,password)*, it just hang up and
keep running in endless loop.
I tried to find the reason but it just make me more confused at *"_response = Protocol.getInputStream().readResponse(protocol.getResponseBuffer)_*".
please help me out as if SSL is no then it should prompt me some error.

I am able to connect with SSl as true and rest of the configurations are same as above.

regards-
