Does it take awhile on the other browsers? IE is very impatient sometimes, and will "time out" while waiting, while the others will sit there longer and eventually give you the answer. About all you can do is make your application faster, or fool IE into waiting. :-) If you can connect to IMAP asynchronously, you can keep sending a space to IE while you're waiting, and call http://php.net/flush so that the spaces out out to the browser. If this all has to happen before some headers go out, you *might* be able to do: <?php header("Microsoft: sucks"); flush(); ?> and fool IE that way into keeping the connection open... But I'm not sure PHP won't cache the headers and ignore your flush() at that point anyway... If the other browsers are all responding quickly, then you've got some other problem with IE, which is no surprise. It's got lots of problems :-) What exactly is coming to IE in the way of headers and content? -- Like Music? http://l-i-e.com/artists.htm -- PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
