That got me there.

After digging around in the $prefix/bin/webmail-install script
and grep'ing my way through the Horde directories, I figured out
that I could rerun webmail-install script after creating the
mysql database, user, and password, and all the appropriate
tables were created.

Now I need to look at the schema to see what's necessary in
migrating an older horde/imp installation to this.

Thanks again.

somebody else did, either in the present or in the past.  -- Thomas Sowell
