On the horde/imp/test.php at the bottom, can you access your imap 
server by manually configuring the form?

It will test different configurations and at least one should have a 
nice green success ;)

That exact same configuration either in setup->horde->authentication or 
in imp/config/servers.php inserted into one of the informational imap 
configurations, if you choose application->imp, should work with 
exactly the same results.  It is a good way of cofirming configuration, 
passwords, etc.

I would try to not fix anythig that isn't broken.  I do that far too 
often and then have to put thing back the way they were.

The coma above between 22,993 looks somewhat suspicious to me but I 
don't know what the error format should be.

I don't know but hopefully there is some information in your log files 
that will guide you if the above doesn't help you find it.  Maybe 
someone else who uses imap-uw can make some suggestions.
