Description:
------------
common mail() fce has logging support configurable by php.ini. It can log to file or syslog.

but imap_mail() doesn't provide any logging. Just silently send the email.


Test script:
---------------
imap_mail("dude@example.com","Test","Test mail");

Expected result:
----------------
imap_mail() should respect INI settings
mail.log
mail.add_x_header

Actual result:
--------------
imap_mail()
- doesn't log (mail.log)
- doesn't include uid/script to mail header (mail.add_x_header)

Affected all latest PHP 5.x versions

Fascinating!  Apparently, imap_mail() makes not much sense if the
mail is going to be sent via sendmail_path; it's just a stripped
down alternative implementation to mail() (does not log, does not
protect from header injection, etc.)  Only if the mail is going to
be sent directly via SMTP it may (still) make sense to use this
function, because it properly parses the address lists, although
the mail() implementation also attempts this at least.

It might make sense to implement imap_mail() on top of php_mail().
