Issue with file_put_contents


Recommended Posts

I'm attempting to have a script that when complete, will access my email account, add all the email addresses of senders to a database (just a text file for now), and mail the list out once a week. At the moment, however, I am stuck.


I'm using put_file_contents to try and add these addresses to a text file, but it only writes one email address. My code is as follows.


    $imap = imap_open("{imap.gmail.com:993/imap/ssl}INBOX","xxx@gmail.com", "xxx" );
    $message_count = imap_num_msg($imap);

    for ($i = 1; $i <= $message_count; ++$i) {
        $header = imap_header($imap, $i);

        if (isset($header->from[0]->personal)) {
            $personal = $header->from[0]->personal;
        } else {
            $personal = $header->from[0]->mailbox;

        $email = "$personal <{$header->from[0]->mailbox}@{$header->from[0]->host}>";

$fromaddr = $header->from[0]->mailbox . "@" . $header->from[0]->host;

  echo "$fromaddr <br>";


$file = 'database.txt';
$current = file_get_contents($file);
$current .= ($header->from[0]->mailbox . "@" . $header->from[0]->host);
file_put_contents($file, $current);




The echo shows all the email addresses when I load the page, but when I try to write it, it only writes the last one displayed. How do I resolve this issue?

Thank you in advance.
