Our Lotus Notes imap server allows login aliases for mailboxes. For me, those are:
Jakko Verhallen/SiTel
Jakko Verhallen

I use the imap protocol to make a signup webpage for personnel activities. However, this way, I can sign up 3 times. There is no way to get the real name from the imap mailbox. I don't think that there is a way to retrieve your email address too.

The only thing I can do right now is to force people to login using there email address as username, and cut off the domain part... 
It would be have something like imap_username() or something...

Reproduce code:

Expected result:
Get the full user name or email address

Actual result:
not possible???
