Since imp/config/servers.php has changed, and imap-uw support has
changed, it would be useful if you posted either your servers.php
file or at least summarized your settings (ssl, tls, port, etc).

Appears so.

Of course not.

No, it doesn't do that per se.  It could be any number of things
that you did wrong, or other problems like networking, certificates, etc.

All versions of Horde/IMP support IMAP.  Note that uw-imap support
changed, but this should only affect your folder settings (though it
could cause problems if for example the folder settings are wrong,
it is trying to search your entire hard drive for your folders, and
hence takes so long the connection times out...).
