[Dovecot] Dovecot and horde issues

First time poster to this list, please be kind.

I am having difficulties trying to get the current stable version of  
horde's imp webmail to work correctly using dovecot 1.0rc15.  I am  
using a pre-release version of SME Server 8 which runs on top of  
CentOS 5.  I have also tried using the 1.0 release of dovecot as well.

What is happenning is that when I login to imp, I don't see any  
folders.  I can create folders in imp which do get created in my  
Maildir directory, but I can't see them.  If I revert back to  
dovecot-0.99.14-1.2, then I am able to see my folders.  I have been  
looking in the wiki at the steps needed to upgrade from 0.99 to 1.0  
and I thought everything had been taken care of, but since things  
aren't working, I have overlooked something.  I also browsed the  
archives and see that others are using horde with various dovecot 1.x  
releases, so I know it should be possible to get it to work.

My dovecot.conf currently only as the below, which works fine for 0.99:
maildir_copy_with_hardlinks = no

my /etc/pam.d/dovecot has:
more /etc/pam.d/dovecot
auth       required     pam_nologin.so
auth       include      system-auth
account    include      system-auth
session    include      system-auth

imp servers.php:
$servers['_prompt'] = array(
     'name' => 'Choose a mail server:'

$servers['thebennetthome2.com'] = array(
     'name' => 'IMAP Server',
     'server' => 'localhost',
     'protocol' => 'imap/notls',
     'port' => '143',
     'maildomain' => 'test.com',
     'smtphost' => 'localhost',
     'realm' => 'test.com',
     'preferred' => ''

php -v
PHP 5.1.6 (cli) (built: Apr  9 2007 03:37:21)

I do get some php errors when logging into horde, and a lot of php  
errors when creating folders that I can post if needed.  I did post my  
issue to the horde list as well, but there has been no answer to date.

Please let me know what other information is needed to assist me with  
fixing this issue.

Thank you very much,

John Bennett
