This is excellent! I will add a few notes to help others use it.

1. Make sure you are using the newest version from zip file etodb-2006-09-01.zip -- the main zip file named emailtodb_v0.9.pack.zip is NOT the newer version.
2. You need both the example_1_index.php (rename as your wish) file AND the class.emailtodb_v0.9.php file.
3. Configure line 35 for the folder you want files saved to and make sure that folder is writeable.
4. Configure line 48 according to whether you will run script from browser (it uses meta-refresh) or cron.
5. Configure line 59 for your mail server and login. For Windows Host that uses SMTP:
$this->link = imap_open("{mail.YOURDOMAIN.com:143/notls}INBOX", "YOUREMAIL@YOURDOMAIN.COM", "YOURPASSWORD");
6. Configure line 23 of example_1_index.php for database credentials and email credentials. If Windows with SMTP:
$edb->connect('MAIL.YOURDOMAIN.COM', '/smtp:143/notls', 'YOURMAIL@YOURDOMAIN.COM', 'YOURPASSWORD');

I tested this and it does a good job with archiving emails to database and saving the files. It does well even for saving multiple attachments. It will also give the attachment files sequential numbers to their filenames to avoid overwriting existing files.

I highly recommend this script. It took me a little while to figure out how to make it run on a Windows host, but once done, it does really well and is exactly what I needed. I had tried writing my own script that does this work, but this one is vastly superior.

One more thing, on line 327 or so, change
this line:
foreach ($from as $id => $object) {

to corrected as below:
foreach ($to as $id => $object) {

I read other comments for this script and saw that some reported that it won't save text file attachments. I tested that and it would not save text file attachments for me either. But, I don't have to have it do that. Still, that is something that I hope someone will post a solution for.

OK, I see that the script is set up to process only image attachments. If you take a look at the code, you'll see a Switch and only image attachments are provided for. If you want other filetypes saved, you'll have to write them into the code.

I just can not get this script to work. I've gone through and replaced the lines listed above but when I run the example_1.php it just comes up with a blank page :(

I've written my own script which is sort of working but struggles with the body as it includes emails replied to :(

My Experience with IMAP on Linux Server:

1. The script will not insert the message into the DB when you change line 327 from "foreach ($from as $id => $object") to: "foreach ($to as $id => $object)"

2. Keep Line 327 as "foreach ($from as $id => $object)" for IMAP.

Thanks for your help, I used your indications with some some slight modifications to the imap_open string on line 59 which gave me:

$this->link = imap_open("{mail.mysite.com:110/pop3/notls}INBOX", "myemail+mysite.com", "mypass");

In my case I had to add pop3 and it works perfectly.

However, in the class.emailtodb_v0.9.php example found in the zip, this string is meant to use the variables set at the beginning of the page:

var $host = 'mail.mysite.com';
var $port = '110';
var $login = 'myemail+mysite.com';
var $pass = 'mypass';

so I tried:

$this->link = imap_open("{"$host":"$port"/pop3/notls}INBOX, $login, $pass");

for imap_open but can't get this to work, any ideas why?

Is there anyway that mails should not get deleted and if some one replies a mail from my inbox then that replied message should also get appended in that database......

I know if i remove this 2 methods:
email_delete(); and email_expunge();

Then mails will not get deleted but the problem is blank values get inserted into the database!!!

Thanks in advance ....
