Imap_open

software development

#1

Does the imap_open function work on dreamhost?

If you’re talking about within PHP, I believe the answer is no. You would probably have to compile your own PHP to get IMAP support.

U can install your own php? I thought on shared hosting that we all have are php docs parsed through the same php. I thought that it is this way cause I dont have access to the php.ini file because it is shared and that is why you have to do the hack of .htaccess files.
