imap_getmailboxes

(PHP 3>= 3.0.12, PHP 4 , PHP 5)

imap_getmailboxes --  Read the list of mailboxes, returning detailed information on each one

Description

array imap_getmailboxes ( resource imap_stream, string ref, string pattern)

Returns an array of objects containing mailbox information. Each object has the attributes name, specifying the full name of the mailbox; delimiter, which is the hierarchy delimiter for the part of the hierarchy this mailbox is in; and attributes. Attributes is a bitmask that can be tested against:

Mailbox names containing international Characters outside the printable ASCII range will be encoded and may be decoded by imap_utf7_decode().

ref should normally be just the server specification as described in imap_open(), and pattern specifies where in the mailbox hierarchy to start searching. If you want all mailboxes, pass '*' for pattern.

There are two special characters you can pass as part of the pattern: '*' and '%'. '*' means to return all mailboxes. If you pass pattern as '*', you will get a list of the entire mailbox hierarchy. '%' means to return the current level only. '%' as the pattern parameter will return only the top level mailboxes; '~/mail/%' on UW_IMAPD will return every mailbox in the ~/mail directory, but none in subfolders of that directory.

"can't connect: " . imap_last_error());

$list = imap_getmailboxes($mbox, "{your.imap.host}", "*");
if (
is_array($list)) {
  
reset($list);
  while (list(
$key, $val) = each($list)) {
    echo
"($key) ";
    echo
imap_utf7_decode($val->name) . ",";
    echo
"'" . $val->delimiter . "',";
    echo
$val->attributes . "<br />\n";
  }
} else {
  echo
"imap_getmailboxes failed: " . imap_last_error() . "\n";
}

imap_close($mbox);
?>
