The IMAP authenticator doesn't allow setting of the default organisation 
name (the AD authenticator does). This is a bug, which I will fix.

It will still show the organisation name in the form, and the user will 
be able to change it if they want to; but it will be filled with a 
default value from preferences.php when the form appears.

I think this is the fault of the IMAP server but we can't adjust that so the users are always fixing the org name for each dropoff or request.
