Connecting to Exchange 2010

I am trying to connect to Exchange 2010 via IMAP on SSL. I have this working on my demo server on Exchange 2007, but have not gotten this right on 2010.

Here is the message I get back when I try and connect:

System.Net.Sockets.SocketException (0x80004005): A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond
at System.Net.Sockets.Socket.DoConnect(EndPoint endPointSnapshot, SocketAddress socketAddress)

This is my code:

Dim ImapClient As New Aspose.Email.Imap.ImapClient()
ImapClient.Host = Server
ImapClient.Password = Password
ImapClient.Username = username
ImapClient.Port = 143
ImapClient.Timeout = 240000
ImapClient.EnableSsl = True

It doesn't matter how long I make the Timeout, it always comes back with the above message in 30 seconds. There are a lot of mails in the box that it needs to download from, over 2Gigs worth. So it will take a while for Exchange to give the list. But it is failing on the connect.

Please help.

I made a big assumption. And that was that the IMAP service was actually running. What I did was take off the SSL, and when I tried to restart the IMAP Service, I found it was not running! So I got it up, and everything seems to be fine now.
