Quoting Dengel Harald <h_dengel at gmx.de>:
> My configuration: horde 3.1.RC1 with imp, kronolith, turba and nag.
> Authentication is performed by imp over an imap-server. The imap-server
> accepts only a kind of cryptic login-name (e.g. m1423565-6).
> My problem and intention is, how to accomplish

> to convert this into the necessary form (m1423565-6)
> I have already created a table with the original (imap-) usernames and the

That is what the username hook in horde/hooks.php is often used for.
The example is just and example but shows how to change eculp to
eculp at encontacto.net for authentication allowing a person to login
without having to put their complete email address. While you are
there you might want to read through all the examples. You'll probably
find some others that you will want to use.
