Hi, i'm testing the new stable Horde release. I installed Horde, Imp,
Kronolith, etc. I configured all applications. I'm using IMAP for
authentication and MySQL for prefs.

When trying to login for the first time to Horde, it failed:

"Login failed because your username or password was entered

Syslog reveals this stuff:

Dec 30 11:33:08 XXXXX imap[19165]: accepted connection
Dec 30 11:33:08 XXXXX HORDE[19094]: [horde] FAILED LOGIN for florin
[XXX.YYY.ZZZ.KKK] to Horde [on line 95 of
Dec 30 11:33:08 XXXXX imap[19165]: STARTTLS negotiation failed:
weiqi.home.local []
Dec 30 11:33:08 XXXXX imap[19165]: Connection reset by peer, closing

The auth configuration is this:

$conf['auth']['admins'] = array('Administrator');
$conf['auth']['checkip'] = true;
$conf['auth']['params']['hostspec'] = 'localhost';
$conf['auth']['params']['port'] = 143;
$conf['auth']['params']['protocol'] = 'imap';
$conf['auth']['params']['imapconfig'] = 'separate';
$conf['auth']['driver'] = 'imap';

If i'm not mistaken, i configured Horde to use unencrypted IMAP
authentication (which is what i want) while it actually uses some kind
of encrypted IMAP (or am i wrong?).
What do i need to change in the configuration?

My IMAP server (Cyrus-2.2.10) works fine using plain text authentication
with Evolution and Squirrelmail.
