Sorry I was unclear, this is what I am doing, yes.

Actually, query seems to be a problem. Here the user is initially set:

If the user doesn't exist in the roundcube database, $user will be 
empty. I've disabled auto_user_create since I don't want double entries 
in the database, so I end up with the error message that the user will 
not be created.

 From the looks of it I was able to work around all other issues.

What do you think?
