As others have pointed out, you need to go into gmail's settings and enable
POP3 access. There's also a page there that explains what settings to use
(port numbers, SMTP AUTH type etc).

Also, upgrade to sylpheed-2.5.0. There's an issue with remembering gmail's
SSL certificates that was resolved in version 2.5.0.
