Sorry for my english

When i want to do a mail copy by imap_append, imap_append return false if the attachment(s) exceed approximately 900 Ko.
If the attachment(s) dont exceed the 900 Ko, imap_append return true.

Reproduce code:
$boundary = "------=".md5(uniqid(rand()));
$header = "MIME-Version: 1.0\r\n";
$header .= "Content-Type: multipart/mixed; boundary=\"$boundary\"\r\n";
$header .= "\r\n";
$ouv=fopen ("$file", "rb");$lir=fread ($ouv, filesize ("$file"));fclose ($ouv);
$attachment = chunk_split(base64_encode($lir));
$msg2 .= "--$boundary\r\n";
$msg2 .= "Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64\r\n";
$msg2 .= "Content-Disposition: attachment; filename=\"$file\"\r\n";
$msg2 .= "\r\n";
$msg2 .= $attachment . "\r\n";
$msg2 .= "\r\n\r\n";
$msg3 .= "--$boundary--\r\n";
imap_append($stream,"{".$serveur_mail."}Sent Items","From: expediteur\r\n"."To:\r\n"."Subject: sujet\r\n"."$header\r\n"."$msg2\r\n"."$msg3\r\n");
imap_close ($stream);

Expected result:
Normally, imap_append would have send the message with attachement(s) in Sent Items box same when the attachment(s) exceed approximately 900 Ko

Actual result:
If the attachment(s) exceed approximately 900 Ko, imap_append not send the message in Sent Items box

Sorry, but your problem does not imply a bug in PHP itself.  For a
list of more appropriate places to ask for help using PHP, please
visit as this bug system is not the
appropriate forum for asking support questions. 

Thank you for your interest in PHP.

PHP function is a simple wrapper around the imap's library 
mail_append_full() function, which appears to have the 
limitation you have mentioned. Please report this bug to 
the IMAP library developers.
