It's easy if you can authenticate the users (against the db) at the 
same time as you lookup their mailboxes. You could then use Horde 
authentication against the database, use hordeauth in imp's servers.php 
and set the 'server' setting dynamically from a db lookup with the user 
name (Auth::getAuth()).
