On possible explanation of the problem is that the DNS settings on
the machine you are running this on are different than on the machine
where it works correctly.
Try the following: on the machine where the command works correctly
in a shell window to find out the IP address of domain.com. Then use
that IP address in the pop:// URL instead of domain.com.
Another possibility is that the host where it is not working is outside
of a firewall that prevents POP access to domain.com. In that case you
are out of luck.
