PHP IMAP Functions

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
In the PHP manual ( ) it reads:

Quoted text here. Click to load it

Can someone tell me where to go to find out how these functions work in
relation to POP3?

Thank you,

I think the idea is just to use the functions as if you were connecting
to a pop3 server.

The page for imap_open
( ), for instance
mentions pop3 in the "flags" section of the "mailbox name" parameter.
It even gives a small example:

// To connect to a POP3 server on port 110 on the local server, use:
$mbox = imap_open ("INBOX", "user_id", "password");

It's best just to browse the pages and see what they have to say about
any time pop3 has to be specified or something. If it doesn't say
anything, I think you can assume that you can just get on with
programming as if IMAP.

Sorry if that's no help.
