How to install openssl?

I’m such a noob. I’m trying to require the file “net/imap” to read mail
from an imap server. I copied the example directly from the Net::IMAP
documentation. However, I’m getting this error: uninitialized constant
SSL

This error occured while loading the following files:
net/imap
net/ssl.rb

This is weird because I un-commented the line for the openssl module
upon installation of ruby. I have been trying everything, and it is
frustrating. Can anyone help me? Thanks.
