I having trouble inputting emails content  into a mysql database it only put one in.

<?php 
$imap = imap_open("{".$host.":143/novalidate-cert}INBOX", $user, $pass)or die(imap_last_error()); 
?><?php do{?><?php

   $counter++;
     
    $num = imap_num_msg($imap); 

	
	 
           
		  $partno = "1";

 $content_of_email= (imap_fetchbody($imap, $num, $partno));
          
		 
 $insertSQL = "INSERT INTO  `import`.`emails_in` (
`id` ,
`sContent` ,
`time`
)
VALUES (
NULL ,  '".$content_of_email."', 
CURRENT_TIMESTAMP
);";
                       

  mysql_select_db($database_con, $_con);
  $Result1 = mysql_query($insertSQL, $_con) or die(mysql_error());
     
	


    //move the email to our saved folder
    //$imapresult=imap_mail_move($imap,'1:'.$num,'INBOX.done');
    
    

	 

     
	 

 



} while ($num==0); 
  //close the stream 
     imap_close($imap);
	 echo $counter;
	 
	  ?>

What is the value of $num?  The way this is written it will only work once, unless $num is zero.

And in semi-related news, you will need to get off MySQL, because PHP is doing away with the MySQL extension.  This article explains why and shows you what you must do to keep your scripts running.

$num is the number of  emails I have changed it to counter =0  
<?php 
$counter=0;
$imap = imap_open("{".$host.":143/novalidate-cert}INBOX", $user, $pass)or die(imap_last_error()); 
?><?php do{?><?php

   $counter++;
     
    $num = imap_num_msg($imap); 

	
	 
           
		  $partno = "1";

 $content_of_email= (imap_fetchbody($imap, $num, $partno));
          
		 
 $insertSQL = "INSERT INTO  `import`.`emails_in` (
`id` ,
`sContent` ,
`time`
)
VALUES (
NULL ,  '".$content_of_email."', 
CURRENT_TIMESTAMP
);";
                       

  mysql_select_db($database_con, $_con);
  $Result1 = mysql_query($insertSQL, $_con) or die(mysql_error());
     
	


    //move the email to our saved folder
    //$imapresult=imap_mail_move($imap,'1:'.$num,'INBOX.done');
    
    

	 

     
	 

 



} while ( $counter==0);

Try this

<?php 
$imap = imap_open("{".$host.":143/novalidate-cert}INBOX", $user, $pass)or die(imap_last_error()); 
$msgcount = imap_num_msg($imap); 

for($num = 1; $num <= $msgcount; $num++) {

 $partno = "1";

 $content_of_email= (imap_fetchbody($imap, $num, $partno));
	 
 $insertSQL = "INSERT INTO  `import`.`emails_in` (`id` ,`sContent` ,`time`)VALUES (NULL ,  '".$content_of_email."', CURRENT_TIMESTAMP);";

  mysql_select_db($database_con, $_con);
  $Result1 = mysql_query($insertSQL, $_con) or die(mysql_error());
   
} 

imap_close($imap);
?>
