imap_delete --  Mark a message for deletion from current mailbox


bool imap_delete ( int imap_stream, int msg_number [, int options])

Returns TRUE.

imap_delete() marks messages listed in msg_number for deletion. The optional flags parameter only has a single option, FT_UID, which tells the function to treat the msg_number argument as a UID. Messages marked for deletion will stay in the mailbox until either imap_expunge() is called or imap_close() is called with the optional parameter CL_EXPUNGE.

Note: POP3 mailboxes do not have their message flags saved between connections, so imap_expunge() must be called during the same connection in order for messages marked for deletion to actually be purged.

Example 1. imap_delete() Beispiel

$mbox = imap_open ("{}INBOX", "username", "password")
    or die ("can't connect: " . imap_last_error());

$check = imap_mailboxmsginfo ($mbox);
print "Messages before delete: " . $check->Nmsgs . "<br>\n" ;
imap_delete ($mbox, 1);
$check = imap_mailboxmsginfo ($mbox);
print "Messages after  delete: " . $check->Nmsgs . "<br>\n" ;
imap_expunge ($mbox);
$check = imap_mailboxmsginfo ($mbox);
print "Messages after expunge: " . $check->Nmsgs . "<br>\n" ;
imap_close ($mbox);
