Horde gets the password from the login and checks it against the
authentication-mechanism what you have choosen.

If you are using IMP for authentication, IMP will use IMAP (or POP3) to
authenticate to the server, just like any mail-client. You can find the
configuration in the file servers.php in the IMP4 configuration.
On my system this is /etc/horde/imp4/servers.php.
