tls:// doesn't work on Port 143 as it should.
It works like ssl:// on Port 993 only. This is wrong, and it seems TLS doesnt really initiate STARTTLS but normal SSL.
tls:// should work on Port 143.

Tested this on 4.3.4RC3 and 2003-10-30stable.

Reproduce code:
dumb fsockopen=("tls://bla",143);
will return  fsockopen(): SSL operation failed with code 1. OpenSSL Error messages: error:1408F10B:SSL routines:func(143):reason(267)

Warning: fsockopen(): php_stream_sock_ssl_activate_with_method: SSL handshake/connection failed

Works with Port 993

Expected result:
No errors. Working on Port 143

Thank you for taking the time to write to us, but this is not
a bug. Please double-check the documentation available at and the instructions on how to report
a bug at

TLS and SSL are names for two "similar" kinds of application level crypto.  Opening a socket with tls:// or ssl:// via fsockopen opens the socket with crypto turned on.  tls:// does not perform STARTTLS negotiation as that is protocol specific - how can PHP guess which protocol you are talking? :-)

Currently, there is no way (from userspace) to open a clear text tcp:// socket and then switch on tls:// mode.  This is a feature that will be present in PHP 5.
