Hi Craig,

I have exactley the same problem, as I described in a mail I sent yersterday.
Edit lib/Horde/IMAP/Admin.php and change the line:

    $default_params = array(
             'hostspec' => 'localhost',

     $default_params = array(
             'hostspec' => 'yourimap.server.com',

and you can get the list of your users.

It seems that Horde read the server.php for the 'admin' parameters, if  
I change
the 'login' parameter with a wrong user I can't get the user list; but not for
the 'server' to connect to.
