This is something Claws Mail has no control over. In simple terms, it
means "connection to imap.gmail.com works, but this remote server
actively refuses connections to its port 993 (nothing is listening on
that port)".

Since it is unlikely that Google turns off their IMAP servers, it might
be something at your end, perhaps a restrictive firewall, bad IPv6
configuration or something similar.

What does output of following commands look like?

ping -c 1 -W 3 imap.gmail.com
telnet imap.gmail.com 993
telnet -4 imap.gmail.com 993
