From manual page:

When will imap funcitons support UIDPLUS so imap_append will return the UID?

Now its very complicated to get the new appended UID. After imap_append you have to reconnect to the IMAP server before you can see the new added message and in the meanwhile other messages could have been added.. So you need imap_search to filter out the new message appended..

This is not a very consistent way
