Can your class be applied in a real world environment where very many people have to access their mails on a server?
Is it better to use Imap?
can your class handle users of up to around 1billion?
how can i use it with Imap?

Sure. This is just mail client class. What has to be able to handle that many accounts is the mail server, not the mail client.

IMAP is a different protocol. It can be used mostly for the same things. Most mail servers support accessing mailboxes either via POP3 and IMAP.

Ok.But how can I configure your class to connect to my mailserver??
eg If i have a user in the database called "Tryer" with password "tried",how can this user be able to access his inbox mails and also send mails say to root user account.

This class can only retrieve received emails connecting to a POP3 server. It does not support servers that only provide access via IMAP protocol.

Many servers support both IMAP and POP3. Check if it is the case of your server.

For sending email you need to use another class like for instance the MIME Email message class:

phpclasses.org/mimemessage

Just take a look at the test_pop3.php example script. It is self explanatory.

But it is telling me:
S -ERR Authentication failed.
Error: Password error: Authentication failed.
what could be the problem?

That is because you are not passing the correct user name or password as the error message suggests.

Sending messages and receiving is totally independent.

Anyway, some servers require that the user name has the domain name others don't. Maybe that is your issue.
