Depending on how many emails you're talking about, and easy way to get some mail from an old email account setup in Outlook, into an IMAP email account on cPanel might be to setup the new cPanel IMAP account in Outlook, along side the old account. Then just drag / drop the mail from one inbox into the other, from within Outlook. Inbox syncs and mail should be there on server.

You cannot import a .pst (Outlook mail data file) into Horde, AFAIK.

I would have also suggested an IMAP account.

In your CPANEL create a new temporary email account, and connect this to Outlook using the IMAP protocol.

Your Outlook will now have two email accounts, the old one and the new one.

Drag and drop all the emails from the old account to the new account.
This may take some time depending on how many emails you have, so you may want to let this perform overnight.

Once all the emails have transported to the new account, remove the old account from Outlook, and recreate it, but using the IMAP protocol.

You can now copy the emails from the new (temporary account) back to your old account.
When the transportation has completed, remove the new (temporary) account.

There are no doubt tidier ways of doing this, but this method has worked for me numerous times.
