Gets information on the mailboxes.
An IMAP\Connection instance.
reference should normally be just the server specification as described in imap_open
Passing untrusted data to this parameter is insecure, unless imap.enable_insecure_rsh is disabled.
Specifies where in the mailbox hierarchy to start searching.
There are two special characters you can pass as part of the pattern: '*' and '%'. '*' means to return all mailboxes. If you pass pattern as '*', you will get a list of the entire mailbox hierarchy. '%' means to return the current level only. '%' as the pattern parameter will return only the top level mailboxes; '~/mail/%' on UW_IMAPD will return every mailbox in the ~/mail directory, but none in subfolders of that directory.
Returns an array of objects containing mailbox information. Each object has the attributes name, specifying the full name of the mailbox; delimiter, which is the hierarchy delimiter for the part of the hierarchy this mailbox is in; and attributes. Attributes is a bitmask that can be tested against:
LATT_NOINFERIORS - This mailbox not contains, and may not contain any "children" (there are no mailboxes below this one). Calling imap_createmailbox will not work on this mailbox.
LATT_NOSELECT - This is only a container, not a mailbox - you cannot open it.
LATT_MARKED - This mailbox is marked. This means that it may contain new messages since the last time it was checked. Not provided by all IMAP servers.
LATT_UNMARKED - This mailbox is not marked, does not contain new messages. If either MARKED or UNMARKED is provided, you can assume the IMAP server supports this feature for this mailbox.
LATT_REFERRAL - This container has a referral to a remote mailbox.
LATT_HASCHILDREN - This mailbox has selectable inferiors.
LATT_HASNOCHILDREN - This mailbox has no selectable inferiors.
|8.1.0||The imap parameter expects an IMAP\Connection instance now; previously, a resource was expected.|
