That's not much to go on.  I'd try a different IMAP client like
evolution to see if the problem is at the client or server end.
It could just be firewalling on the server.
A simple test for the server is:
telnet server_name 143
If imap is working you should get some sort of prompt.  Oddly IMAP
doesn't take a simple quit command like pop or smtp so you'll probably
have to close the telnet window to exit.
