 1. Really stuck with actually connecting the the mail server Reply
 Matt Ireland 2008-04-15 18:59:18 Hi, I'm trying to connect to my mail account with the following settings: \$file="pop3s://mat.i.land:password@pop.gmail.com:995/"; or \$file="pop3://matt@mattireland.co.uk:password@mail.netweaver.com:110/"; where password is my password (it's not really). Neither of these work. Is there something wrong with my syntax or the class. I can post full all of my code if you want but whatever the settings (which I'm pretty sure are correct) I just get the error Warning: fopen(pop3s://...@pop.gmail.com:995/) [function.fopen]: failed to open stream: "pop3_stream::stream_open" call failed in C:\Program Files\EasyPHP 2.0b1\www\pop3\mytest\example1.php on line 11 Is anyone else having my problem? I'm using the current version of the script and my email does support POP3/IMAP. Thanks very much and I'd really appreciate any help! Thanks again, MTI
