We're using Cyrus-IMAP so I cannot help you with that, but did you 
configure your imapserver in
/usr/local/www/horde4/imp/config/backends.php ?

Specifically the line
'hordeauth' =

This file itself has a lot of useful information on imap settings.
I assume you checked the imap server log files?

While on the Horde4 subject, we are running a test installation and find 
the perfermance of H4 to be considerably slower the its predecessor.

Did anyone here experience this?
