retrieving email from IMAP server using PHP

Postby kunal_it » Thu Oct 31, 2002 12:41 pm

I want to retrieve mails from an IMAP server.

I am running my script on a machine different from where the IMAP server is running.

For doing this, I am making use of imap_open function that comes with php-imap package. Both php and php-imap packages have version 4.1.2 (release 7).

Now, when I am trying to open an IMAP stream to the mail server, I get a warning 'couldn't open stream'..

here is what i am exactly doing.

$inbox = imap_open("{mail.mydomain.com}","username","password");

I also tried

$inbox = imap_open("{mail.mydomain.com}INBOX","username","password");

and also tried specifying the port number 143 explicitly. However, none of them worked. Any ideas of why am I getting this error?

Thanks,
Kunal

$str = "{".$host."/".$protocol.":".$port."}INBOX";
imap_open($str, "$user", "$password");
