Try these lines of code:

@define('AUTH_HANDLER', true);
@define('HORDE_BASE', '/path/to/your/horde');
require_once HORDE_BASE . '/lib/base.php';
require_once HORDE_BASE . '/imp/lib/api.php';

function countUnseenMails() {
        require_once IMP_BASE . '/lib/Mailbox.php';
        $GLOBALS['horde_api']['stream'] =_imp_getStream();
        $imp_mailbox = &IMP_Mailbox::singleton();
        $unseenMessages = $imp_mailbox->unseenMessages();
        return count($unseenMessages);

function sso($user, $pass, $server='localhost') {
        return _imp_authenticate($user, array('password' => $pass),
array('server' => $server));

Now you should be able to authenticate with
sso($user, $pass);

The function countUnseenMails() should return the amount of unseen mails.

Good luck,
