Hi all,
Ive been struggling with this for a while, so hopefully someone can help.

This is a very simple script using PHP imap functions to read a mailbox. Is there a function I can use to get the entire source of the message (the same as I would see if I was viewing the source in outlook etc). So for a mime message I would get the entire thing, headers and everything?


<?php


    $imap = imap_open("{SERVER}", "email@domain.com", "password");
    $message_count = imap_num_msg($imap);



    for ($i = 1; $i <= $message_count; ++$i) {
        $header = imap_header($imap, $i);
        $body = imap_fetchbody($imap, $i,$partno);
        $prettydate = date("jS F Y", $header->udate);

        if (isset($header->from[0]->personal)) {
            $personal = $header->from[0]->personal;
        } else {
            $personal = $header->from[0]->mailbox;
        }
$body=imap_base64($body);
        $email = "$personal <{$header->from[0]->mailbox}@{$header->from[0]->host}>";
        echo "On $prettydate, $email said \"$body\".\n";
    }

    imap_close($imap);

Please see: http://php.net/manual/en/function.imap-fetchstructure.php

I've had some luck using an email "pipe" script to access all of the inbound messages for a given email address.  The server associates the pipe with an email address and instead of putting the messages into an inbox, the server starts the pipe script.  The pipe reads the email from STDIN.  Each line of the input looks exactly like what you would expect to see if you did "view source" and read the text a line at a time.
