php feof fwrite

I have written some code, which collects emails through a pop3 server, Got it working, however fails to read big emails.

From what Ive read I need to use a while loop, but when I read just 1 email, I get timeout error. In my working example takes milliseconds to pull the email, and about 3 seconds to collect 110 emails.

Do I need to tell it to go to the next line and read?

//Very Slow!!!
     $handle = fopen("c:\\test\\51.eml", 'a');
     fwrite($popOpen,"RETR 51\n");	
     while (!feof($popOpen)) 
          {
          $buffer = fgets($popOpen, 4096);
          fwrite($handle,fread($popOpen,8192));
          }
     fclose($handle);
 
//Works
     $handle = fopen("c:\\test\\51.eml" . $counter . ".eml", 'a');
     fwrite($popOpen,"RETR " . $counter . "\n");	
     fwrite($handle,fread($popOpen,8192));
     fclose($handle);

Open in new window

Nope still the same problem.

During debug it seems to enter the while loop, go round several times, then stop, and just hang!

I would suggest that it isnt able to see the last 4096 and maybe less, but as I dont know too much about this, cant really suggest it.

HELP!!! I dont  have much hair left, lol!

If $popOpen above is a valid resource then the code shoud work just fine.

Here is some example code i found that can be of help to you.
