The replied to and forwarded flags are not synchronized via the EAS  
protocol as "flags", per se.. What you are seeing is a combination of  

The POOMMAIL2_LASTVERBEXECUTED property contains information on the  
last action that may have been performed on an email. It does not have  
to be displayed in the UI as a flag-like item. In fact, some clients  
show it as text: "You forwarded this message to bob at example.com on  

In addition, when an email is replied to or forwarded using a SMART  
request, Horde is smart enough to know that it should set an  
appropriate IMAP flag. If a SMART request is not done, these IMAP  
flags are not guaranteed to be set correctly on the Horde side (though  
the client may still show it as replied/forwarded since it is the  
client that performed the action).

As far as the categories go, they are not technically flags. They are  
exactly what they say: Categories. Since Horde isn't Exchange, we  
handle the Categories the best we can and display them as custom IMAP
