imap_open and Gmail Issues

I have a CRM web application that checks users' email accounts and
downloads them to the application. One of the users has a gmail
account and I am trying to get access to this account using the PHP
imap_open (which works with POP mailboxes) function. I have tried
various methods for the values of the domain, but nothing seems to
work.

Has anyone successfully done this?

Thanks,
Josh

Is this a PHP application running on Windows? If so, there are known
problems with IMAP and SSL. You need to check your PHP build. See for
example

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:".$port."}".$newsgroup, $newsuser, $newspass, OP_ANONYMOUS); and it's failing to connect.

Hi, I have a problem to connect mailbox using IMAP_OPEN. There is no problem to connect using standard port such as imap_open ("{10.0.0.0:143}INBOX", "user", "pass"), but I have a problem connect using secure connection such as imap_open ("{10.0.0.0:993/imap/tls}INBOX", "user", "pass") or imap_open ("{10.0.0.0:993/imap/ssl}INBOX", "user", "pass"). When I use MSOutlook, it connects without problem using ssl. Any ideas?

I'm attempting to connect to Cyrus IMAP server using imap_open() function. The connection is sucessfull, however there is a delay and warning message about "rsh failure". I added /norsh flag to connection string, but it seems to be ignored. The call to imap_open() currently looks something like this: imap_open("{cyrus.google.com}/tls/novalidate-cert/norsh/service=imap/user=cadm", "cadm", "secret", OP_HALFOPEN); As I said, it works....

Hello, I am using imap_open ("{pop.server.com:110/pop3/ notls}INBOX","user","password") in a page that gets emails with pop3 protocol. Imap_open works perfectly on my PC + easyphp1.8, but not on a server + Debian + php5/Apache2 + php5-imap. Error message is "Couldn't open stream". Looking further (print_r(imap_errors())), the real error message is "Security problem: insecure server advertised AUTH=PLAIN". But I do not understand this...

Hello, I use imap_open ("{pop.server.com:110/pop3/ notls}INBOX","user","password") in a function to get email from pop3 server. But, it is not working on my new serveur, and it was working on my old one (error message : Security problem: insecure server advertised AUTH=PLAIN). What are the items I have to install to make imap_open work (I have already installed on my Debian php5-imap, openssl) ? Is there any configuration ?

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".
