Php And Imap To Read Emails - Need Help

Hi everyone, im experimenting with php and IMAP to read emails on my local email server. My local email server is Mercury V4 which aparently does support POP and IMAP, i have confirmed the server is working by sending an email from the server using its internal send mail system and then checking that email using the Thunderbird client. the email was sent and received properly.

So i moved into the PHP area and done the basic connect code (the full code i used is below so check that, im sure its right, i basically copied it) which seemed to work, i got the result: "Resource Id #2" Should that be "#4" instead? One tut said i would get #4 so maybe the error lies here...

Anyway it connected and disconnected with no errors so i procceeded to use Imap_headers($connect); to get the headers of the emails.. Oh no.. It didnt work...The error detection code just told me it had failed with the variable i used to contain the header info returning a FALSE result and as such it just didnt work.... Any ideas? I really cant think of it. My PHPINFO tells me i have IMAP libs installed with the readout being:

IMAP c-Client Version 2004SSL Support enabled



And as i said the mercury mail server seems to support IMAP and POP so what else can it be? I have just updated to the latest version of PHP and checked that the PHP.INI file contains the right filepath for the IMAP DLL. Im all out of ideas! The code ive used is below and is virtually copied with the changing of a few variable names:

<?$user = "phptest";$pass = "test";$connect = @imap_open("{localhost}INBOX", $user, $pass)or die("Connection to server failed");echo $connect;$headers = @imap_headers($connect)or die("Couldn't get emails");$numEmails = sizeof($headers);echo "You have $numEmails in your mailbox";imap_close($connect);
