IMAP services are generally on port 143, not port 43.
In Mail.app goto Preferences..., then select Accounts and goto the Advanced tab.
Make sure that the port number is specified correctly for your system.
Verify the port number, protocol (IMAP or Secure IMAP), and authentication mechanism with your Mail administrator.
