IMAP support for PHP on Windows

I have a computer I've set up as a testing server at home and I'm having a
problem trying to locate the pre-compiled IMAP libraries for PHP on Windows.
According to the book "PHP & MySQL Web Development by Luke Welling and Laura
Thomson", I can get the Windows build of the imap libraries from
http://www.php4win.de. But in going to the website, the title bar says
"php4win suspended" with an empty page.

The creators of IMAP, http://www.cac.washington.edu only seems to distribute
the source and you have to compile it yourself, which I don't have a
compiler. Anyone know where I can find it (or an older and possibly
compatible build)?

According to UW's IMAP FAQ (ouch, TLA overload):
2.4 What do I need to build this software on Windows?
You need Microsoft Visual C++ 6.0, Visual C++ .NET, or Visual C# .NET
(which you can buy from any computer store), along with the Microsoft
Platform SDK (which you can download from Microsoft's web site).
You do not need to install the entire Platform SDK; it suffices to install
just the Core SDK and the Internet Development SDK.
You can freely download Microsoft's C++ compiler (but not the IDE) to do the
build (excuse the multiline URL):
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...DisplayLang=en

Hopefully this will get you where you need to be.
