imap_open issue

Hello,
I am using imap_open ("{pop.server.c om:110/pop3/
notls}INBOX","u ser","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_e rrors())), the real error
message is "Security problem: insecure server advertised AUTH=PLAIN".
But I do not understand this message ...

I would personally look at your mail server configuration. I do not
have much experience with imap, however I used it once. My suspicion
is that if it does not work out of the box its most likely the mail
server settings.
I thought the same on the beginning. But it is working on the PC, so
it seems to be due to the Debian settings/tools. On the concerned
server, telnet on port 110 is working but not my imap_open function.

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

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....

G'day, I am so stuck I am pulling what's left of my hair out. Any gurus out there that can help me with this would be greatly appreciated. I am relatively new to php and am trying to connect to a pop 3 mail server using imap_open. I have read the manual and numerous website, tryed numerous classes, been confused, lost my mind, gone back to basics and I am at wits end.

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 "<=>".
