imap_append --  Append a string message to a specified mailbox


bool imap_append ( resource imap_stream, string mbox, string message [, string options] )

imap_append() appends a string message to the specified mailbox mbox. If the optional options is specified, writes the options to that mailbox also.

Returns TRUE on success or FALSE on failure.

When talking to the Cyrus IMAP server, you must use "\r\n" as your end-of-line terminator instead of "\n" or the operation will fail.

Example 1. imap_append() example

$stream = imap_open("{imap.example.org}INBOX.Drafts", "username", "password");

$check = imap_check($stream);
echo "Msg Count before append: ". $check->Nmsgs . "\n";

imap_append($stream, "{imap.example.org}INBOX.Drafts"
                   , "From: me@example.com\r\n"
                   . "To: you@example.com\r\n"
                   . "Subject: test\r\n"
                   . "\r\n"
                   . "this is a test message, please ignore\r\n"

$check = imap_check($stream);
echo "Msg Count after append : ". $check->Nmsgs . "\n";
