[horde] Kolab2 support

Forgot to mention that while using Horde with Kolab is possible, the full 
Kolab integration is still beta (well, it was last time I looked a couple 
months ago).  The documentation you can find on the topic spans multiple 
versions (read that as multiple procedures) of both systems.  The integration 
can be done, but would take more time to learn than I'm willing to spend at 
this point.

So, if you treat Kolab as a simple IMAP server, Horde behaves very much like 
you would expect.
