I cannot use mail() with my current "NO banners account", I need to have at least a "Personal Package" plan. I will be upgrading my account shortly. When I do...

Will I be able to access incoming email's through the filesystem?

As it stands now I can read the following directory which is my email box

/home/mail/james@thedatamine.biz/

but what appears to be my inbound email I can't get at because I believe it is some sort of symbolic link owned by root. It looks like this

-rw------- 1 92635 root 982 Nov 19 21:13 1132427630.H931248P32630.coolinc.info:2

Will I be able to access this file to read my emails through php after I upgrade my account? Am I just looking in the wrong place? There are no PHP functions which deal with inbound emails as far as I can tell.

Can anybody help me with this one? Sorry for all of the questions?

Whoops! I guess I panicked and asked the question too soon...

Here's the answer...


You were looking in the wrong place jupiter777. PHP supports the imap suite of functions that will enable you to access your POP3 account.

Try using this piece of code...

$password = 'not telling';

$mbox = imap_open("{localhost:110/pop3}INBOX", "james@thedatamine.biz", $password)
or die("can't connect: " . imap_last_error());

echo "<h1>Mailboxes</h1>\n";
$folders = imap_listmailbox($mbox, "{localhost:110/pop3}INBOX", "*");

if ($folders == false) {
echo "Call failed<br />\n";
} else {
foreach ($folders as $val) {
echo $val . "<br />\n";
}
}

echo "<h1>Headers in INBOX</h1>\n";
$headers = imap_headers($mbox);

if ($headers == false) {
echo "Call failed<br />\n";
} else {
foreach ($headers as $val) {
echo $val . "<br />\n";
}
}

imap_close($mbox);


better yet... go check out php.net for the answers your looking for...
