imap_open and NNTP

I'm trying to use imap_open to get news from a server that requires a
user name and password.

I'm using

$nntp = imap_open("{".$ newsserver."/nntp:".$port."} ".$newsgrou p,
$newsuser, $newspass, OP_ANONYMOUS);

and it's failing to connect.

The PHP docs show using user/password with email but not nntp.

Am I trying to use imap_open to do something it's not able to?

Try:

$newspass);

That's fixed it. I would never have seen that since it worked without
authentication.

Thank you very much.

I will be running the script with imap_open() on the IMAP server as root. Can I run imap_open() without entering the password for a user. Is there any other way as an administrator, to open user's mailbox and perform imap_uid and imap_msg without entering user's password? Thanks Jaysheel
