Thank you Vilus, and all.

Does anyone on this list use dovecot?  If so, would you please share your 
dovecot entries?

Dovecot does allow for mysql auth, but I am not sure how to make it work 
with horde and the horde_users table.

I am thinking that my dovecot.conf should have something like this in order 
to use the same table as horde for user auth:

driver = mysql
connect = host= dbname=horde user=hordeuser password=hordepasswd
# Is it PLAIN-MD5?
default_pass_scheme = PLAIN-MD5
# Not sure on the next line
password_query = SELECT userid  as user_uid, user_pass, FROM horde_users 
WHERE userid = '%u'

Anyone?  I suck at this.
