Hi there,

I've setup a server which will operate as a Newsletter server. This system is running Server 2003 R2. with Apache, MySQL and PHP.

In order to process bounces, the system has requested the PHP:IMAP module. I did a bit of research and apparently I need to compile some code and do a few other things. IIt all didn't seem like ti was intended to work on Windows, but I may be wrong.

I went into C:\Windows and edited the php.ini to so that the PHPIMAP.dll (sp?) was not excluded. The application actually seems to think the module is installed now, but its not actually doing as intended so I may have just tricked it into working incorrectly.

If anyone has some basic and noob friendly info, that would be great.

Yes from php.ini uncomment the phpimap.dll ( extension=php_imap.dll ) and check this file is present in extensions directory ( c:\php\ext )

If this not solved then copy that phpimap.dll file from ext folder to c:\php , c:\windows , c:\windows\system32 )

But My suggestion is you to Install wamp ( Windows Apache Mysql Phpmyadmin) server on that windows server 2003.

I don't understand this , Is Wamp server also Installed..?

And to check the Imap Configured to serve create phpinfo.php file and upload to server.

<?
echo phpinfo();
?>

And check there IMAP is displayed when you browse http://domainanme/phpinfo.php or http://IPaddress/phpinfo.php
