1. is loaded (as seen from the script and, through 
get_loaded_extensions() function);
2. imap.ini is parsed (as seen from phpinfo() function);
3. php is compiled with imap (as seen from phpinfo() function, IMAP c-Client 
Version 2007e);
4. error log file (php.ini) don't record any failures after launching the 
5. connection to IMAP Server (dovecot) through telnet doesn't have any problem. 
Moreover, when I start the script I see that the connection to IMAP Server goes 
well but it is disconnected immediately. That is compared to telnet connection, 
the connection through imap_open function doesn't stay opened!
6. webserver (apache) configuration is checked for misconfiguration (as imap-
functions start from webserver environment).Nothing found.  

Test script:
  echo "<pre>imap loaded</pre>";
       echo "<pre>imap not loaded</pre>";

$mbox = imap_open("{}","user_name","user_pass");

if($mbox !== FALSE)
  $list = imap_list($mbox,"{}","*");
       echo"<br>","The stream is closed!";

Expected result:
An array containing the names of the mailboxes ($list).

Actual result:
imap loaded
Notice: Undefined variable: mbox in /usr/lib/cgi-bin/PPP.php on line 24 Fatal 
error: Call to undefined function  imap_list() in /usr/lib/cgi-bin/PPP.php on 
line 27

Not enough information was provided for us to be able
to handle this bug. Please re-read the instructions at

If you can provide more information, feel free to add it
to this bug and change the status back to "Open".

Thank you for your interest in PHP.

The actual result is unlikely to be the result of running the
supplied test script (note the line numbers, and most importantly
the notice about $mbox being undefined). Furthermore the tested
PHP version is not irrelevant.
