This may come as a shock - but I use Horde for both reasons.  And yes, on the whole your defaults are very sane.  However, I know I changed a few - and it would be nice to know, or easily find which few, so I can work out if the change was sane, and whether to keep it like that.

Then, I think that's what I'll do..  

Andreas has anticipated my next question though - once I'm done setting up the new installation, I'm going to want to copy the data from the old installation.  I'll presume info regarding that is in docs/UPGRADING and come back if I have questions.

However, if you have pointers, please don't be shy.

Love the new look and feel.
