There is a completely rewritten version of this class at bitbucket now: peeker

imap_pop has been superseded! try peeker.


Here's a basic example:

try this out in a controller after dropping the file named imap_pop.php into the libraries dir:

gmail settings example


$this->load->library('imap_pop');
// settings for gmail, you must have 
// SSL support compiled into PHP
// and turn on POP in gmail
$config['server']='pop.gmail.com:995';
$config['login']='username@gmail.com';
$config['pass']='password';
$config['service_flags'] = '/pop3/ssl/novalidate-cert'; 
$config['mailbox']='INBOX';
$connected = $this->imap_pop->connect_and_count($config);
if($connected)
{
$em = $this->imap_pop->grab_email_as_array(1);
$this->imap_pop->close();
}
print_r($em);

"normal" pop3 example


$this->load->library('imap_pop');
// this is your pop server host and domain name
$config['server']='pop.domain.com:110';
$config['login']='username';
$config['pass']='password';
// you may have to look up the imap functions at PHP.net
// to get the right set of service flags here
$config['service_flags'] = '/pop3/notls'; 
$config['mailbox']= 'INBOX';
$connected = $this->imap_pop->connect_and_count($config);
if($connected)
{
$em = $this->imap_pop->grab_email_as_array(1);
$this->imap_pop->close();
}
print_r($em);

A version of this class with support for plaintext file attachments (i.e. .html, .php, .txt). Also, contains license terms (X11, the "MIT" license) File:imap_pop_text.php.zip
