Seems the parameter \O ("old password") in my update query does not get 
populated correctly.

My update query:

$conf['auth']['params']['query_update'] = 'UPDATE mailbox SET password = 
\P WHERE username = \L AND password = \O';

Actual query in debug log:

2014-12-09T12:37:02+01:00 DEBUG: HORDE [passwd] SQL  (0,0012s)
         UPDATE mailbox SET password = 'mynewpassword'
           WHERE username = 'adress at domain.de' AND password =

Ok, I see. Sponsoring possible? Just write an email, if interested.
