Please include your work to support the answer…

Cindy’s comment on my last post reminded me that I did not show any of the routines I tried while trying to figure out how to get the full raw email from the built in PHP imap_ routines.

So, here it is… It is obviously scrap work, but some one might find it useful to have all in one place. Just save this as a php file on your server (some place not shared since you’ll have your email password in it in raw text) and then change the mail server, username and password references (3 of them) to your own. As is, this routine will display a VERY simple webmail reader. It displays a list of messages in your box and the contents of 1 message.

It should give you the groundworks for building something more complex.

However, what it does not include is any part of the TRUE header which is what I pointed out here that I really need.

BTW this routine is OBVIOUSLY NOT safe html. If you display an email that has an embedded code that does nasty stuff, this testing routine will not protect you from it. It is JUST test code. Use it wisely.
