All email messages have a unique identifier.  It is a long string that
ususally contains a domiain name or ip address.  It is unique to all email
addresses in the world.  It would be much, much more useful if imap_uid
would return that instead.

Subject: Bug #7486 Updated: imap_uid does not return the uid

ID: 7486

Old-Status: Open
Status: Feedback
Bug Type: IMAP related
PHP Version: 4.0.2
Assigned To:

You might have the wrong idea of what uid is - what do you expect it to be?
On pop servers the message uid will very likely just _be_ the message

When I call connect to a qmail pop server and call imap_uid all it does is
return the message number back to me.  It DOES NOT return the uid.  I have
to call imap_header for that and it is very slow.
