I noticed the problem after upgrading from PHP v4.3.4 to v4.3.10.  ISMail ( stopped working.  None of the headers provided in the envelope argument were being returned by the function.

I also attempted running the example code (using /etc/motd for the file in the code) from the man page for this function without success:
----begin output----
--0-1804289383-1103265027=:94095--<br />
----end output----

I think I need to give a better example.  While the fix in CVS does fix the example from the man page, I am having trouble when the envelope includes custom_headers.

If you add the following line to the example script in the man page, you should notice that the other headers are missing.  I tested this with a 20050104 CVS snapshot.

$envelope["custom_headers"] = array("X-Mailer: TestMailer");

Thank you for the earlier fix.  It did help.

And also found another crash bug:

$envelope["from"]= "";
$envelope["to"]  = "";
$part1["type"] = TYPEMULTIPART;
$body[] = $part1;
echo imap_mail_compose($envelope, $body);

Test script for the missing headers with custom_headers:


$envelope["from"]= "";
$envelope["to"]  = "";
$envelope["cc"]  = "";
$envelope["custom_headers"] = array("X-Mailer: TestMailer");

$part["type"] = TYPETEXT;
$part["subtype"] = "plain";
$part["description"] = "description";
$part[""] = "";

echo imap_mail_compose($envelope, array($part));
