Generally clients from the middle east countries get this error when they access the Horde Webmail:

Content Encoding Error (content_encoding_error)
Server response could not be decoded using encoding type returned by server.
This is typically caused by a Web Site presenting a content encoding header of one type, and then encoding the data differently.

You can fix this by following below steps :

Locate the Horde config file 'conf.php' on the server:
file path: "?Drive Letter?:\Inetpub\vhosts\webmail\horde\config\conf. php"

Look for the following in that config file:

$conf['compress_pages'] = true;

Change it into:

$conf['compress_pages'] = false;

Save the horde config file & restart the webmail client. And.... done!!
