Happens in dynamic view too. Even the initial login to Horde tries to 
login to the imap server defined in IMP.  We noticed it because we are 
testing an LDAP server for authentication and using it for Horde login. 
Our imap server is not using this LDAP server for authentication so the 
passwords can be different. We noticed that if a user's imap password is 
not the same as the LDAP password the user can login to Horde with the 
LDAP password but there is a long delay logging in and when clicking 
links. Delay is caused by failed imap login attempts.
