Yes, it can be done:

1) Get the latest uv-imapd source (release 2000 something).
2) Read the uv-imap docs and configure it for SSL use. (docs/BUILDSSL if i
recall correctly)
3) Depending on you php version, you might have to patch one file. Somewhere
in the php imap code, you have to change a #ifdef 0 into a #ifdef 1
(I quickly looked into the 4.0.2 source, but couldn't find it anymore)
4) Use host/imap/ssl instead of host/imap in your connection strings.

This means that in your horde/lib/horde.lib file, look for stuff like
if ($this->servtype == 'imap-ssl')
       $connstr = '{' . $this->server . '/imap/ssl}' .  imap_utf7_encode($this->mailbox);

I don't recall the exact stuff, and I don't have the exact sources here right
