That's the Message-ID header. The uid which imap_uid() is intended to return is a 
unique identifier of that that message in that mailbox that won't change over time. It 
has nothing to do with the Message-ID header.

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.

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 number...

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.
