Hi,
When $mailbox string ends with '/' it doesn't subscribe and doesn't return any error. You need to rtrim this character.

Hello there! Sorry for my english
For someone who need to use this function.
I was trying to use it on my own imap server v2.0 but it didn't subscribe to any of the folders, so i try this method and it works.

class imap {
var $imaphost="{your.imap.host:143}";
var $imapuser="user";
var $imappass="pass";
}

$imapm = new imap();

$mbox=imap_open($imapm->imaphost,$imapm->imapuser,$imapm->imappass);

$bool=imap_subscribe($mbox,"{your.host:143}INBOX");
  if ($bool)
  {
     print "Ok";
  } else {
            print "No ok";
           }
