Haven't used this.

Also Horde is as hard as you make it.  Personally, I think dealing
with all XML  and internal tools stuff on Zimbra is worse than Horde
and it's config files and dependencies.  That being said, I haven't
used the new Horde stuff in ports, my install is still a couple of
years old.
