Humm... it's not as simple unfortunately. Because I use a local directory for Horde with the ability for users to change their password periodically, the mail account can not be changed by the user. It is managed from external server via a provider.
 I would just want to memorize them in order to facilitate the consultation of their mail. I could go through fetchmail, but I would lose the central management of mail accounts and their setup. Also, I would lose the regular check from the mail server by imp without a manual action.
I see my problem raises many questions... :-)

Thanks for your answers.
