I'm running Horde/IMP too and it works fine on my tablet and phone - do you know if the site you're using is just using a very old version of the Horde framework perhaps?

Look in your webroot, horde/imp/lib/version.php

I'm running 4.3.3 which is fairly old too, but seems to display fine in all the mobile devices.

I'm unable to pull up that page at all to even attempt to log in - is there a firewall preventing public access to it?  I tried it from multiple different source IPs...

Sorry, I missed the port assignment on the end.

So, I can see what is happening here - evidently there is a mobile version built in, and it appears to be a bit broken.

On my Samsung Galaxy 10.1, it loads up and looks identical to how it looks in Chrome on my PC.  Works just fine.

However, on my phone (Droid Incredible 4G LTE) it has an undecorated login page, and when I authenticate, it just has a blank page with "welcome test" in the top left corner.

So it looks like the mobile version is broken.

What do you mean the mobile version is broken. Can you give me a workaround on this on how to find a solution. Looking forward to your feedback.

Are you running a Plesk server?  cPanel?  Or just a generic Linux machine where you installed Horde yourself?

I am running ClearOS Enterprise. I guess it's a panel. The index.php does not load when logging into webmail.
I access the the linux machine through the ClearOS.

So when you load index.php, it runs a little detection routine on the User-Agent variable to determine if the visitor is a on a mobile device or on a regular PC.  If the user is on a mobile, they get directed to a different page which for whatever reason does not work on your installation - you might just need to upgrade Horde.

If you Google "Horde mobile blank page" you will see that some people are disabling the detection process, and just forcing all users to the regular mail interface (which works fine).  Will that option work for you?

Upgrading Horde is going to be harder than my first suggestion, which is just to disable the browser check routine - whichever you want to do though.

This describes how to install a new version of Horde in ClearOS:
