In Terminal, type the command
host mail.corporates.com

Do you get back a sensible address?  From here, I get
# host mail.corporates.com
mail.corporates.com has address

but things might be set up so that you get a different, LAN-based address.

>From here, port 80 connections to are immediately refused,
but that might very well make sense if use of that server is restricted.

# telnet 80
telnet: connect to address Connection refused
telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused

If Safari gets the same sort of response from its connection attempt (also a
telnet, although that's hidden from you), you are seeing the proper display
of the error by Safari.
