Check the configuration section for every application (horde, imp, 
turba, etc)

Also check backends.php and prefs.php for every application (horde, imp, 
turba, etc).
All settings are documented there.
You don't edit backends.php or prefs.php but create separate files with 
ONLY settings to override from defaults.
It is described in the headers of both backends.php and prefs.php

For example, for IMAP settings create backends.local.php in the IMP 
configuration directory.
