IMAP is the protocol that your email client uses to connect to the incoming mail server.  This error message is stating that the program was unable to make a successful connection to the incoming mail server.

Your incoming mail server should be imap.aol.com and the port number should be 143.  I would suggest checking your email client to ensure that the settings for the incoming mail server are accurate.
