It seems that php4.0.6 try to open the imap connection thought cram-md5 authentication only, so if your imap server don't support it you can't open your mailbox.

My workaround is to comment out 


from : php/ext/imap/php_imap.c

than recompile.

So php will auth via plain text password, but this my be a security hole.

Thank you for taking the time to report a problem with PHP.
Unfortunately your version of PHP is too old -- the problem
might already be fixed. Please download a new PHP
version from

If you are able to reproduce the bug with one of the latest
versions of PHP, please change the PHP version on this bug report
to the version you tested and change the status back to "Open".
Again, thank you for your continued support of PHP.
