You could use the imap_* functions:

http://php.net/imap
http://www.electrictoolbox.com/php-imap-download-email/
http://php.net/manual/en/function.imap-open.php
http://php.net/manual/en/function.imap-fetchheader.php

This would fetch the entire raw message:

$msg = imap_fetchheader($stream, $msgno, FT_PREFETCHTEXT);

I didn't think that was working, because I knew that the From should look like this:

From: "XYZ Inc."<vip@xyz.com>

But all that showed up was "XYZ Inc.".  Then I finally figured out that the "<" and ">" on the email address was causing the page to be confused because it thought it was html.

Thanks.

Yes, use htmlentities() when you need to output this on a html page.

Something like this:
echo '<pre>'.htmlentities($msg).'</pre>';

Open in new window
