Herr Schneider;

I've done this, and it would work, except that my passwd created within the 
admin interface uses mysql, and mail uses imap.

How can I make imap to use mysql as well?

I realize that this is probably a dovecot issue, but I am hoping to find an 
answer from those of you who have already done this as I am finding nothing 
in Dovecot for Horde.

Thank you,
