cclient's imap_append() function allows to set two optional arguments 'flags' and 'date'. 'flags' is a set of imap flags to be setted to created message and 'date' is a date of message creation. now php's imap_append() function allows to set only flags (named as options). but why? i created little patch that corrects this omission. see patch at and little description at

Reproduce code:
$stream = imap_open("{}", "username", "password");
imap_append($stream, "{" . $host . "}INBOX",
. "Subject: test\r\n"
. "\r\n"
. "this is a test message, please ignore\r\n",
'01-Jan-2006 13:13:13 +0300'

Expected result:
this will create message received at 01-Jan-2006 13:13:13 and marked as deleted in INBOX folder

Actual result:
it's impossible to set the date of creation (receiving) of message because imap_append() doesn't allow it
