bool imap_delete ( int imap_stream, int msg_number [, int options] )

Parameters

imap_stream

An IMAP stream returned by imap_open().

msg_number

The message number

options

You can set the FT_UID which tells the function to treat the msg_number argument as an UID.

Returns TRUE.

Examples

Example 1047. imap_delete() example

<?php

$mbox
= imap_open("{imap.example.org}INBOX", "username", "password")
   or die(
"Can't connect: " . imap_last_error());

$check = imap_mailboxmsginfo($mbox);
echo
"Messages before delete: " . $check->Nmsgs . "<br />\n";

imap_delete($mbox, 1);

$check = imap_mailboxmsginfo($mbox);
echo
"Messages after  delete: " . $check->Nmsgs . "<br />\n";

imap_expunge($mbox);

$check = imap_mailboxmsginfo($mbox);
echo
"Messages after expunge: " . $check->Nmsgs . "<br />\n";

imap_close($mbox);
?>


Notes

Note:

POP3 mailboxes do not have their message flags saved between connections, so imap_expunge() must be called during the same connection in order for messages marked for deletion to actually be purged.
