  why not setup Horde to collect users and passwd from your mail data base.

I have one DB for mail users. Courier and postfix is authenticating against
this DB. Horde has its own DB.
I have 2 DB admins one for the mail DB and one for Horde DB.

  I kan lists users, ad users and change passwd from Horde in the mail DB.
So that should not be a problem.
There is a wiki page about it in hordes wiki
Perhaps it need some adjustment to fit your needs.
