Since this library at a whole is fairly poorly documented, and it doesn't help that there's 30-something functions, and many of the functions do the same things, I have gone through and categorized the functions.  Hopefully this will help somebody else, I know it will help me!! -Justin

If you're looking to access an IMAP server but your server does not have the IMAP-Extension installed (and you aren't an administrator), you'll have a few other options:

2) Access the IMAP Server using your server's Shell (this is assuming that you're Web Server and IMAP Server are (on) the same server).

3) Create your own IMAP-handler using fsockopen(), fgets(), and fputs().

The problem with option '2' is that, while it is possible, it is extremely difficult to accomplish. With that said, you might be better off using a class that has already been written for this purpose. A simple query into a internet search-engine of "PHP IMAP Class"

I used the instructions from Chris (thanks Chris) to recompile the imap.so module for CentOS 5 (PHP 5.2.11). I didn't want to recompile all PHP extensions only imap.so.

So here is my version of recompiling imap.so for PHP 5.2.11 based on the instructions of Chris.

0) Install the dependencies
yum groupinstall "Development Tools"
yum install openssl-devel
yum install krb5 krb5-devel
yum install pam-devel
1) Create a temporary folder and cd to it.
# mkdir ~/php-imap && cd ~/php-imap
2) Download c-client.tar.Z
# wget ftp://ftp.cac.washington.edu/imap/c-client.tar.Z
3) Extract the c-client.tar.Z file, which would create the imap-2007e folder at this moment.
# tar -zxf c-client.tar.Z
4) Download php source code using. Use the version of the php installed on the machine (php --version)
Extract the php-*.rpm file to get the php-*.tar.bz2 source package
# wget http://3es.atomicrocketturtle.com/packages/ php/php-5.2.11-3.art.src.rpm
# rpm2cpio php-5.2.11-3.art.src.rpm | cpio -idmv
# tar xvjf php-5.2.11.tar.bz2
5) Install php-imap plugin using or you can simply just add the php ini file for the imap.so extension
# sudo yum install php-imap
6) Go to the imap-2007e folder and edit the Makefile such that the 'EXTRACFLAGS=' line reads: 'EXTRACFLAGS=-fPIC'
7) Compile c-client.
# make lr5  IP6=4
8) Go to the php source folder and run the configure script with the following arguments:
# ./configure --disable-all --with-imap=shared,<path to imap-2007e folder> --with-imap-ssl --with-openssl=/usr
9) Compile php
# make
10) Copy/replace the imap.so file from the ./modules folder to the php module folder.
# sudo cp ./modules/imap.so /usr/lib64/php/modules
11) Restart Apache
# sudo /etc/init.d/httpd restart
12) Check imap section of <?php phpinfo(); ?>, and it should only list IMAP c-Client Version and SSL Support. The Kerberos Support should NOT be listed here!

The IMAP php plugin doesn't work by default with Microsoft Exchange 2007 server, so I had to recompile php with the c-client without Kerberos support.

Also, I wanted to compile it as a shared library (imap.so).

The quick and easy way that I've used to do this on Fedora Core 13 & 14 x64 was:
1) Create a temporary folder and cd to it.
2) Download c-client.tar.Z from ftp://ftp.cac.washington.edu/imap/
3) Extract the c-client.tar.Z file, using 'tar -zxf c-client.tar.Z', which would create the imap-2007e folder at this moment.
4) Download php source code using 'yumdownloader --source php' *(a)
Extract the php-*.rpm file to get the php-*.tar.bz2 source package *(b)
5) Install php-imap plugin using 'sudo yum install php-imap', or you can simply just add the php ini file for the imap.so extension
6) Go to the imap-2007e folder and edit the Makefile such that the 'EXTRACFLAGS=' line reads: 'EXTRACFLAGS=-fPIC'
7) Compile c-client. I had to use 'make lfd IP6=4'
8) Go to the php source folder and run the configure script with the following arguments: './configure --with-imap=shared,<path to imap-2007e folder> --with-imap-ssl'
eg. I used './configure --with-imap=shared,/home/chris/imap-2007e --with-imap-ssl'
9) Compile php by simply running 'make' *(c)
10) Copy/replace the imap.so file from the ./modules folder to your PC's php module folder. I used 'sudo cp ./modules/imap.so /usr/lib64/php/modules'
11) Restart Apache: 'sudo service httpd restart'
12) Check imap section of <?php phpinfo(); ?>, and it should only list IMAP c-Client Version and SSL Support. The Kerberos Support should NOT be listed here!

There are slight differences in achieving the same in Ubuntu 10.04 x64 (or perhaps other versions too):
4) Download php source code using 'apt-get source php5', which will create a php5-* source folder
5) Install the php5-imap plugin using 'sudo apt-get install php5-imap'
7) Compile c-client. I had to use 'make ldb IP6=4'
10) Copy/replace the imap.so file from the ./modules folder to your PC's php folder. I used 'sudo cp ./modules/imap.so /usr/lib64/php5/20090626'
11) Restart Apache: 'sudo service apache2 restart'

* Notes:
(a) yumdownloader is part of yum-utils package, which can be installed using 'yum install yum-utils'
(b) You can extract the rpm file using 'rpm2cpio php-*.src.rpm | cpio -idmv'
(c) You can greatly improve the compilation speed on a multi-core PC using 'make -j `grep -c ^processor /proc/cpuinfo`'

I've tried to compile php with imap sources for 2 days on a mandriva 2006 and it never work...

I succeed only when i uninstall the following RPM witch was already installed on my system :

libc-client
libc-client-devel
imap
imap-devel

here is my configure command :

./configure  --with-apache=/usr/local/apache --with-dbase --with-filepro --enable-mbstring --with-xml=/usr/local/php --enable-ftp --with-db --enable-bcmath --enable-calendar --with-mysql --with-zlib-dir --enable-trans-sid --with-imap=/usr/local/imap-2004g --with-kerberos --with-imap-ssl --with-openssl --enable-sysvsem --enable-sysvshm

I successfully installed c-client and compiled php 5.2.5 with imap on FreeBSD 6.3. To get this stuff work, i did following steps:

1) to install c-client:

download and uncompress c-client.tar.Z to folder /usr/local/
cd /usr/local/imap-2007
make bsf
mkdir include
ln -s c-client include
mkdir lib
cd lib
ln -s ../c-client/c-client.a libc-client.a

2) to compile php:
add this options
--with-imap=/usr/local/imap-2007 --with-imap-ssl

You can also use the novalidate-cert flag and it won't bother you about the ssl stuff:

$mailbox = imap_open("{localhost:143/imap/novalidate-cert}INBOX", "user","pw");

MAC OSX advice for those less experienced in UNIX.

I had a lot of trouble with all the advice here, but I finally got it working, so I thought I'd leave my steps.  If you know a decent amount about UNIX you can probably do better on you own.
#1) downloaded version listed by php.net above.
#2) ran "make opx" on it (the three-letter is your OS, opx is later osx versions)
#3) copied resulting c-client/ folder to where I wanted to leave my imap stuff, herafter referred to as IMAP_HOME.
#4) renamed IMAP_HOME/c-client/c-client.a to libc-client.a
#5) ran "configure" on php using --with-imap=IMAP_HOME --with-kerberos  --with-imap-ssl (my configure insisted that I use the last two)
#6) make, make install, and restarted Apache.  Voila!   

At this point you can delete the downloaded imap stuff, or move it to your sources/ folder or whatever.

fyi.

I had an error during this process

*downloaded from ftp.cac.washington.edu  imap-2006e.tar.gz
*untarred it as /usr/local/src/imap-2006e.
*made lrh (make lrh)
*copied /usr...imap-2006e/c-client/c-client.a into ..../client/libc-client.a
*cd /usr/local/src/php-4.2.1/
*configured php using ... --with-imap=/usr/local/src/imap-2006e --with-ssl

*and during make the following error occurred.

php_imap.c:71: error: conflicting types for 'utf8_mime2text'
/usr/local/src/imap-2006e//c-client/utf8aux.h:37: error: previous declaration of 'utf8_mime2text' was here
php_imap.c:71: error: conflicting types for 'utf8_mime2text'
/usr/local/src/imap-2006e//c-client/utf8aux.h:37: error: previous declaration of 'utf8_mime2text' was here
make[3]: *** [php_imap.lo] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving directory `/usr/local/src/php-4.2.1/ext/imap'
make[2]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/usr/local/src/php-4.2.1/ext/imap'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/local/src/php-4.2.1/ext'
make: *** [all-recursive] Error 1

apparently, apache 4.2.1 and imap-2006e has the same declared function which creates a duplication problem. the utf8_mime2text function is both found on files:

php-4.2.1/imap/php_imap.c (2 occurences)
imap-2006e/c-client/utf8aux.h (1 occurences)
imap-2006e/c-client/utf8aux.c (1 occurrences)
imap-2006e/c-client/mail.c (5 occrences)

bug fixers says i have to upgrade my php, but I cant afford to change versions since i run some home grown developed php software which doesnt work on higher versions.

So I did this.

I replaced all utf8_mime2text texts with utf8_mime2text2 for the imap sources.

since my server is both web and mysql, i used a built in mysql command called 'replace'

$>replace utf8_mime2text utf8_mime2text2 -- /..../c-client/utf8aux.h
$>replace utf8_mime2text utf8_mime2text2 -- /..../c-client/utf8aux.c
$>replace utf8_mime2text utf8_mime2text2 -- /..../c-client/mail.c

then i continued make and make install, without the reported error.

caveats...i just did this to try it. i dunno if it will work later...

Compiling php with support for imap on a linux 64 bits server (tested with php 5.1.6, php 5.2.0, CentOS 4.4 64 bits and c-client snap 0611201609):

1- download the imap from ftp.
# tar -zxvf imap-2006d.DEV.tar.Z
# cd imap-2006d.DEV.SNAP-0611201609/
# vim MakeFile
2- Search for "EXTRACFLAGS=" and add -fPIC at then end:
    before EXTRACFLAGS=
    after   EXTRACFLAGS=-fPIC
3- save the file and quit
# make lrh
# cd c-client/
# cp /.../imap-2006d.DEV.SNAP-0611201609/c-client/c-client.a /.../imap-2006d.DEV.SNAP-0611201609/c-client/libc-client.a
4- navigate to your php directory and:
# ./configure ... lots of options here and ... --with-imap=/.../imap-2006d.DEV.SNAP-0611201609 --with-imap-ssl
# make
# make install

Additional notes:
a- I choose "lrh" in the make but you might check what's yours option.
b- I made it with ssl support and because of this I added the --with-imap-ssl in the php configure option. You might make it with no SSL

Building Apache2, PHP and IMAP requires a shareable version
of the c-client library, but the standard UW code doesn't provide one.
I couldn't find any way to build with the libc-client.a without generating piles of relocation errors. (gcc on Solaris 10)

The IMAP c-client library can be built shareable with the following steps:
1. fix the Makefile in .../imap-2004/c-client to include:
BASECFLAGS="-fPIC -O3"
2. make
3. mkdir tmp
4. cd tmp
5. ar xv ../c-client.a  (to extract the .o files)
6. gcc -shared -o c-client.so *.o  (to create the .so library)
7. copy that c-client.so to /usr/local/imap/lib/libc-client.so
    (it may be necessary to hide the libc-client.a)
8. configure PHP ; make; make install

Mac OS X client install notes with DarwinPorts

The c-client.a isn't present on your system after you've installed the imap-uw package. !But! it's actually present at a specific time during the install phase as it's being complied from source - it's just deleted at the end of the compilation process. So, we'll have to break the install process down into it's component processes and get hold of what we need at the appropriate time:

sudo port fetch imap-uw
sudo port extract imap-uw
sudo port patch imap-uw
sudo port configure imap-uw
sudo port build imap-uw
imapLib=/darwinports/var/db/dports/distfiles/imap-uw/lib
imapIncludes=/darwinports/var/db/dports/distfiles/imap-uw/include
sudo mkdir ${imapLib} ${imapInclude}
cd /darwinports/var/db/dports/build/*/*/*/c-client
sudo cp *.c ${imapLib}
sudo cp *.h ${imapIncludes}
sudo cp c-client.a ${imapLib}/libc-client.a
cd ${imapLib}
ranlib - libc-client.a
sudo port install imap-uw

Now, you can just specify:
    --with-imap=/darwinports/var/db/dports/distfiles/imap-uw \
    --with-imap-ssl=/darwinports \
in your ./configure command.

Install note for FreeBSD:

If you get this:

/libexec/ld-elf.so.1: /usr/local/lib/php/20041030/imap.so: Undefined symbol "ssl_onceonlyinit"

...in your httpd-error.log.

It is because you compiled cclient without SSL support.

However. In order for me to get SquirrelMail woorking, I had to install ports/mail/imap-uw with WITHOUT_SSL=yes and same option for ports/mail/cclient. After doing this, I recompiled cclient w/o any options to get SSL support, and then installed posrt/mail/php5-imap.

This works. But if you just want SSL everywhere - install imap-uw normally, which will install cclient too. After that, install php5-imap normally as well - and you have a working system with SSL.

Hope this saves more people from wasting too much time like I just did ;)

If you are having difficulty compiling on netbsd from source and want imap support then you should know that the c-client library is compiled with kerberos support.  Unfortunately gssapi_krb5 and k5crypto is not on the system (or at least wasn't for me).  I didn't have administrative level access to add these libraries so I had to do the following.  I still have to test that it worked 100% but at least it compiled without complaining.

Comment the following segments from the configure script.

Segment 1 -- test for gssapi_krb5 library

  case gssapi_krb5 in
  c|c_r|pthread*) ;;
  *)
    if test "$ext_shared" = "yes"; then
        IMAP_SHARED_LIBADD="$IMAP_SHARED_LIBADD -lgssapi_krb5"
    else


  case gssapi_krb5 in
  c|c_r|pthread*) ;;
  *)
      LIBS="$LIBS -lgssapi_krb5"
   ;;
  esac

    fi
   ;;
  esac

Segment 2 -- test for k5crypto

  case k5crypto in
  c|c_r|pthread*) ;;
  *)
    if test "$ext_shared" = "yes"; then
        IMAP_SHARED_LIBADD="$IMAP_SHARED_LIBADD -lk5crypto"
    else

  case k5crypto in
  c|c_r|pthread*) ;;
  *)
      LIBS="$LIBS -lk5crypto"
   ;;
  esac

    fi
   ;;
  esac

BTW.  Since I was only compiling for the modules (they have suPHP so I compile all my own modules when I need them) I only dropped this in for the php configure script parameters

./configure --with-imap=shared,xxxxxx --with-kerberos=xxxxxx --with-imap-ssl

This is verified working via an imap test.  One excellent test that I located on the phpbuilder.com site.  Here it is.  Modify the address, port, protocol type, username, and password appropriately.  The post was 5 years old but the script still works fine.  The posters name was "Matthew"

If you like me disvoer that "make slx" fails, but you're damn sure you've openssl installed then, it might be that the lib and include paths on your distro are different then the defaults provided in the imap-2004a (or imap-XXXXx). To modify go to dir ../imap-2004a/src/osdep/unix and edit the section (shown below) in the Makefile

# Extended flags needed for SSL.  You may need to modify.

#SSLDIR=/usr/local/ssl
SSLDIR=/etc/ssl
SSLCERTS=$(SSLDIR)/certs
SSLKEYS=$(SSLCERTS)
#SSLINCLUDE=$(SSLDIR)/include
SSLINCLUDE=/usr/include/openssl
#SSLLIB=$(SSLDIR)/lib
SSLLIB=/usr/lib

SSLCRYPTO=-lcrypto

Commented out SSLDIR, SSLINCLUDE and SSLIB are defaults and the uncommented are valid paths for Slackware (10.0/10.1).
You should also check your ld.so.conf for valid paths.

Note that is not not necessary to disable SSL in the IMAP compile to make it work with PHP 5.0.3.

1. Compile IMAP with SSL support for your system:

cd /path/to/imap/source/
make <system type> (ldb, lnx, etc)
mkdir include
mkdir lib

2. Make links in IMAP source directory:

cd /path/to/imap/source/c-client
cp *.h ../include/
cp *.c ../lib/
cp c-client.a ../lib/libc-client.a

3. Compile PHP with SSL support,  --with-imap=/path/to/imap/source/ . If SSL support fails, you'll get a configure-time error that IMAP doesn't work. This is a lie, you just need to get SSL support working in PHP. On certain linux systems, with OpenSSL 0.9.7, this means adding --with-openssl=/usr (if the OpenSSL files are in /usr/include/openssl/) instead of the proper directory containing the OpenSSL files. For some reason, giving a parent directory makes PHP able to find the OpenSSL include files.

4. PHP should build.

Alternately, you can disable SSL during the IMAP build, as per the previous directions posted here.

I faced problem in compiling imap with php-5.0.2 release version. Then following commands on snapshot version solved my problem

# tar -zxvf imap-2004b.DEV.tar.Z
# cd imap-2004b.DEV.SNAP-0411051435/

Thus, php compiled sucessufully with imap support on fedora core 1.

I have a pretty much stock set-up of SuSE 8.1 Personal (Apache, PHP et al built by me) and IMAP-2004 refused to build for me.

What I found was, using the make lsu (for SuSE) almost worked built I was getting odd build results, i.e. make failures.

The problem? GCC 3.2. If you don't have an older GCC available, please install one! I installed the gcc_old package from SuSE and built with the following command:

CC=gcc297 make lsu SSLTYPE=none

The result was a perfect build. So if you are getting errors, please try an earlier build of GCC.

For compiling this extension without compiling imap from sources I did (this was mandrake):

Install the following rpms:
imap
imap-devel
openssl
openssl-devel
krb5
krb5-devel
pam
pam-devel

Do the trick:
# mkdir /usr/include/imap/lib
# cp /usr/lib/libc-client-PHP4.a /usr/include/imap/lib/libc-client.a

And the configure line:
./configure <options> --with-imap=/usr/include/imap --with-imap-ssl

(don't forget --enable-pear ;)
