Check the obvious first of course, Server type correct, (most likely POP3). Correct server name? Your username and PW. Also check under [Receiving >> Modify >> Extras] for correct Authentication method and Encryption...

Well, if it is not a server problem on their end, it's most likely a configuration issue. Try removing the account and re-enter a new one rather then attempting to modify the existing. Most likely if it (kmail) is telling you it cannot contact the server then would be a server name problem since it has not gotten to authentication yet.
