You need to define the authentication method for Horde.  That is
configured in horde/config/horde.php.  Look at the comments in
that file for details.

Here's a quick example for authenticating against an IMAP server:

$conf['auth']['driver'] = 'imap';
$conf['auth']['params'] = array();
$conf['auth']['params']['server'] = 'imap.example.com';

Another option is to make IMP the authenticator for the Horde
session.  To do that, uncomment the following two lines in

$this->registry['auth']['login'] = 'imp';
$this->registry['auth']['logout'] = 'imp';
