imap_bodyRead the message body


string imap_body ( resource $imap_stream , int $msg_number [, int $options = 0 ] )

imap_body() returns the body of the message, numbered msg_number in the current mailbox.

imap_body() will only return a verbatim copy of the message body. To extract single parts of a multipart MIME-encoded message you have to use imap_fetchstructure() to analyze its structure and imap_fetchbody() to extract a copy of a single body component.

Simple example on how to read body message of the recent mail.


$imap ) {
//Check no.of.msgs
$num imap_num_msg($imap);

//if there is a message in your inbox
if( $num >) {
//read that mail recently arrived
echo imap_qprint(imap_body($imap$num));

//close the stream

NB the message numbers start from 1 not 0 as normally used for iterating.

Please note that the UID is NOT unique.
UID of the email may be not unique on the server (2 messages in different folders may have same UID).

Basically, don't use the UID as a unique identifier.
