IMAP [1] supports a CAPABILITY command to check for various supported extensions. While the c-client library supports checking for capabilities, PHP doesn't offer any way to do that.

One of that extensions, NAMESPACE [2], is critical for applications that use php and imap in combination with a server that relies on different namespaces for the user inbox and for example the shared folders.
Without support for this command (which again is already available in the c-client library and "only" needs exposure/wrapping) there's no way to access shared folders on a server that supports multiple namespaces and therefor things like listing shared folders, subscribing to shared folders etc. cannot work reliably (without hardcoding/hacking the namespace in).

Proposal: Support for both protocol details should be added. I guess it's a no-brainer for anyone with a little experience with php modules and C.


Reproduce code:

Expected result:
Improved support for the imap protocol, especially for the CAPABILITIES and NAMESPACE part.

Actual result:
No support at all yet.

I'd love to help out with this feature, but I lack the required skills (read: C and basic knowledge of building/creating/hacking php modules).
If any dev has some minutes to lend me a helping hand I'd try to start this on my own..
