The IMAP backend has not (and will never) support listing users,  
because the IMAP protocol doesn't support this. It can't be done. That  
you're seeing a list of users, is either because your browser is  
caching previous input and showing that, or you used a different  
backend for whups before.

If you can't switch to another authentication backend, stop looking  
for answers. It can't be done (as you've been told before). If listing  
users is important for you, ask how to change to an authentication  
backend that supports this with minimal impact to your users instead.
