In addition to that, take care of not mixing up Debian package and  
Horde package via Pear. I use Debian as the base system but I install  
Horde and its applications via Pear. I do not use Horde Debian package.
In your case, if you want to go to use Pear installation, make a  
backup (database and Horde directories) before doing it.

Try it on a test machine first, without any Debian Horde package, have  
you Horde database contents installed from your backup and install  
Horde Webmail via Pear. Take a look at Horde documentaion (Install and  
Upgrading) first (https://www.horde.org/apps/webmail/docs).
