i'm somehow a newbie , i'm running a linux machine with redhat 9. i'm tryng to implement a site with email facilities. i've already compile php4.2.2 with the imap library .i can see that php 4.2.2 and the imap library has been correctly installed in my test.php file where i wrote <? phpinfo(); ?>.whenever i'm trying to open connection with the imap server i'm getting the following messages:

Warning: Couldn't open stream {localhost/imap : 143} in /usr/local/httpd/htdocs/view.php on line 4

Warning: imap_header(): supplied argument is not a valid imap resource in /usr/local/httpd/htdocs/view.php on line 5

<?php

$MAILSERVER="{localhost/imap : 143}";
$link=imap_open($MAILSERVER,$PHP_AUTH_USER,$PHP_AUTH_PW);
$header=imap_header($link,$num);

echo "From: $header[fromaddress]<br>";

Do you have an IMAP server installed on this machine? If yes, which one?

i think it's the uw imap server. apart form the php-imap installation leme explain whatever i've done since i started :

in the redhat 9.0 there's a imap package i selected it then after the installation i went to the xinetd.d directory and in the imap file i set the disable option to no then i went to the xinetd.conf file i added the following line :
imap stream tcp nowait root /usr/sbin/tcpd imapd.
then i restarted the xinetd by doing the following : /etc/init.d/xinetd restart
after restarting the xinetd services i tried to start the imapd typing the following :
/usr/sbin/imapd but i got :
* OK [CAPABILITY IMAP4REV1 LOGIN-REFERRALS STARTTLS AUTH=LOGIN] dyn-10-213.nur.l
ocal IMAP4rev1 2001.315rh at Mon, 20 Oct 2003 10:57:49 +0200 (CAT)
* BYE Autologout; idle for too long. i don't really what's going wrong, but i think it should work. as far as i'm a newbie it seems very strange for me.
thanx in advance mara for your help

Hmm...The line you added to xinetd.conf file looks like inetd format, not xinetd's.

What happens when you have xientd running (with current configuration) when you run
telnet localhost 143

can you tell me the xinetd's format?

when i run telnet localhost 143 i'm getting :

Trying 127.0.0.1...
telnet: connect to address 127.0.0.1: Connection refused

could you give me all the steps to make imap server running ? then i'll see if there is any steps that i've jumped over.

thanx mara

Delete the line you've added to /etc/xintetd.conf, then create a new file in /etc/xinetd.d directory (filename: 'imap', for example). Inside the file there should be something like this:
Code:
service imap
{
        socket_type     = stream
        protocol        = tcp
        user            = root
        wait            = no
        disable         = no
The code above may be wrong (I don't use xinetd very often). You can read the format description when you type 'man xinetd.conf' (if it doesn't work as a normal user, try as root).

To yes? It should be no. When it's done, restard xinetd and try if it works (telnet localhost 143)

What happens when you set up a mail program to use IMAP from your server?
