Since when does Outlook support WebDAV? How did you setup Outlook?

Apache is probably returning that error, not Horde. Did you check the  
web server logs?

Yeah, great. :) How is this supposed to work if Outlook is sending no  
content, and that to wrong address?

Of course, because it's wrong.

Ugly, but could be a workaround.

Even uglier. What if Outlook at any point in time gets fixed suddenly?  
What the user agent of Outlook anyway? And finally, how would that fix  
Outlook not sending any content?
