imap_deleteMark a message for deletion from current mailbox

Description

bool imap_delete ( resource $imap_stream , int $msg_number [, int $options = 0 ] )

Parameters

imap_stream

An IMAP stream returned by imap_open().

msg_number

The message number

options

You can set the FT_UID which tells the function to treat the msg_number argument as an UID.

Return Values

Returns TRUE.

Examples

Example #1 imap_delete() example

<?php

$mbox 
imap_open("{imap.example.org}INBOX""username""password")
    or die(
"Can't connect: " imap_last_error());

$check imap_mailboxmsginfo($mbox);
echo 
"Messages before delete: " $check->Nmsgs "<br />\n";

imap_delete($mbox1);

$check imap_mailboxmsginfo($mbox);
echo 
"Messages after  delete: " $check->Nmsgs "<br />\n";

imap_expunge($mbox);

$check imap_mailboxmsginfo($mbox);
echo 
"Messages after expunge: " $check->Nmsgs "<br />\n";

imap_close($mbox);
?>

Notes

Note:

IMAP mailboxes may not have their message flags saved between connections, so imap_expunge() should be called during the same connection in order to guarantee that messages marked for deletion will actually be purged.
