Elenco dei parametri


An IMAP\Connection instance.

Passing untrusted data to this parameter is insecure, unless imap.enable_insecure_rsh is disabled.


The flags are a bit mask with one or more of the following:

  • OP_READONLY - Open mailbox read-only
  • OP_ANONYMOUS - Don't use or update a .newsrc for news (NNTP only)
  • OP_HALFOPEN - For IMAP and NNTP names, open a connection but don't open a mailbox.
  • OP_EXPUNGE - Silently expunge recycle stream
  • CL_EXPUNGE - Expunge mailbox automatically upon mailbox close (see also imap_delete() and imap_expunge())


Number of maximum connect attempts

Valori restituiti

Returns true if the stream is reopened, false otherwise.
