PHP IMAP Functions

In the PHP manual (http://us3.php.net/imap) it reads:
LIX. IMAP, POP3 and NNTP Functions
Introduction

These functions are not limited to the IMAP protocol, despite their name. The underlying >c-client library also supports NNTP, POP3 and local mailbox access methods.


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

Thank you,
Trevor

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

The page for imap_open
(http://us3.php.net/manual/en/function.imap-open.php), 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 ("{localhost:110/pop3}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.
