There is no function to change the password of a mailbox within the set of IMAP functions - or I cannot find.

I intend to offer to a group of users a set of POP3 mailboxes provided by my ISP. Within a web application of my ISP (called "Confixx"; you probably know it), I'm able to fetch these mailboxes, set passwords on them and connect them to email addresses of my choice.

But the users are not able to change the mailbox passwords I gave them. The "Confixx" does not offer the possibility within its provided WebMail feature.

So I thought about providing an appropriate page within my own web site to let the user change this password. I, a relative beginner with PHP, explored the IMAP function set but did not find any function to change the password of a given mailbox.

Sorry, I forgot to explicitly declare: Hereby I request an IMAP function to change the password of a mailbox after having opened a stream using imap_open().

Sorry, but your problem does not imply a bug in PHP itself.  For a

appropriate forum for asking support questions. 

Thank you for your interest in PHP.
