Is there a question in there somewhere? You give a lot of detail about
your setup (which is good) but you don't say what the problem is.

Sorry, I was lazy about that.
Evolution take too much time to connect to the server.
The Debug Log shows a negative circle with a minus sign in it, and the
Error while fetching mail
Could not connect to

I don't know what can be wrong, because with the same configuration, I
use evolution mail normally at home...

It sounds a lot like you are using this behind a firewall that doesn't
allow outgoing traffic on port 995 and 465. If that is the case, there
is not much you can do, unless you can get the firewall administrator
to grant you permissions.

You can test that by trying to run the command:
$ telnet 995

If that doesn't respond with something like:
  Connected to
  Escape character is '^]'."
you are probably out of luck
