Gmail Imap Via Php Socket


Recommended Posts



I'm trying to access my Gmail account by a socket connection (secure imap is closed by my provider).



Currently I'm at this coding state (not very far...):


// Open a socket

if (!($fp = fsockopen('ssl://imap.gmail.com', 993, $errno, $errstr, 15))) die("Could not connect to host");


// Set timout to 1 second

if (!stream_set_timeout($fp, 1)) die("Could not set timeout");


// Fetch first line of response and echo it

echo fgets($fp);


// Send data to server

echo "Writing data...";

fwrite($fp, "C01 CAPABILITY\r\n");

echo " Done\r\n";


// Keep fetching lines until response code is correct

while ($line = fgets($fp)) {

echo $line;

$line = preg_split('/\s+/', $line, 0, PREG_SPLIT_NO_EMPTY);

$code = $line[0];

if (strtoupper($code) == 'C01') {





echo "I've finished!";





Output er følgende:

* OK Gimap ready for requests from g8if1416270lbr.32 Writing data... Done * CAPABILITY IMAP4rev1 UNSELECT IDLE NAMESPACE QUOTA ID XLIST CHILDREN X-GM-EXT-1 XYZZY SASL-IR AUTH=XOAUTH AUTH=XOAUTH2 C01 OK Thats all she wrote! g8if1416270lbr.32 I've finished!



But how do I get IMAP working, hope somebody has some examples / ideas :)
