imap timeout not working if i have used ssl in server name. In case i have not  used ssl then after 10s it will be timeout but its not working with ssl.

Test script:
imap_timeout(IMAP_READTIMEOUT, 10);
imap_timeout(IMAP_OPENTIMEOUT, 10);
$imap_connect = imap_open("{}", $user, $pwd);

Expected result:
After 10s imap_open show show timeout even server address having ssl.

Actual result:
If i have used ssl then imap_open takes hell lot of time to return a response. timeout is ignored.

Same problem for me.

Same problem here, imap_open() takes forever on SSL servers that don't send a "connection refused", but just drop the packets in their firewall or so...

$connectionString = '{}INBOX';
imap_timeout(IMAP_OPENTIMEOUT, 5);
imap_timeout(IMAP_READTIMEOUT, 5);
imap_timeout(IMAP_WRITETIMEOUT, 5);
imap_timeout(IMAP_CLOSETIMEOUT, 5);
$mbox = imap_open($connectionString, 'someone', 'somepass', OP_HALFOPEN, 1);
