    I used the search function and came across a couple things that helped a little, but didn't answer my question.

    I am sort of new to cPanel / WHM and am now working on getting deeper knowledge. The question is quite straight forward, but I couldn't find an answer (yet).

    When using PHP's imap_open() I'm trying to access a INBOX that's on a cPanel system.
    By pure ignorance I used 110 default POP port. But from what I've read that's wrong.

    What port should I be using to connect to

    {mail.myserver.com:PORT/pop3}INBOX?

    2082?
    2083?

    Kind regards,
    Johannes

    Hey,

    25 - SMTP
    465 - SMTP (SSL)
    110 - POP3
    995 - POP3 (SSL)
    143 - IMAP
    993 - IMAP (SSL)

    These are standard ports, so they should work...

    From,
    Adam

    Thx for the reply!

    Update:

    Found the port I meant 2095 "webmail" port.

    example:

    if I do
    imap_open("{mail.gawsolutions.com:110}INBOX", "jlindenbaum@gawsolutions.com", "mypassword");

    It returns false - no conclusive error I can work with...

    If on the otherhand I use port 2095 (the one Horde, Neo and Squirrel run off) imap_open() rambles on 'til the script times out. Progress?

    Does cPanel allow imap_open() or is there some sort of base restriction kicking in?
