Here's what I use:
$servers['test'] = array(
'name' => 'Test',
'server' => 'mail1.onid.oregonstate.edu',
'protocol' => 'imap/notls',
'port' => 143,
'folders' => '',
'namespace' => 'INBOX.',
'maildomain' => 'test.onid.oregonstate.edu',
'realm' => 'test.onid.oregonstate.edu',
'preferred' => ''
The realm is not important if you are only hosting one domain in Horde.
If you have more than one in your server list (we have 7 or 8), you use
the realm to keep the users separate in the preferences storage of Horde.
Like someone else said, this is pretty well documented in
imp/config/servers.php, but if you wanted a working example, see above.
