README

Simple php-imap integration for Symfony 4.x, 5.x and 6.x.

The version 1.5 and above are only compatible with Symfony 4+. Previous versions support was dropped. If you'd like to use it with Symfony 2.8 or 3.x you should use the version 1.4 which was the last compatible with Symfony 2.8 and 3.x.

Want to support this bundle?

Consider buying our MacOS app which allows you to customize your MacOS menu bar.

Infinite Menu Bar allows you to add to your menu bar custom elements. Want to have current IP (local or external), Macbook battery state, Bitcoin price or even custom contet from any HTTP URL or API? No problem! This app can do this and many more!

Infinite Menu Bar

Installation

1. Composer

From the command line run

$ composer require secit-pl/imap-bundle

If you're using Symfony Flex you're done and you can go to the configuration section otherwise you must manually register this bundle.

2. Register bundle

If you're not using Symfony Flex you must manually register this bundle in your AppKernel by adding the bundle declaration

class AppKernel extends Kernel
{
    public function registerBundles()
    {
        $bundles = [
            ...
            new SecIT\ImapBundle\ImapBundle(),
        ];

        ...
    }
}

Configuration

Setup your mailbox configuration. If your are using symfony 2.8 or 3.x without Symfony Flex add your configuration in app/config/config.yml. If you're using Symfony 4 or Symfony 3.x with Flex open the config/packages/imap.yaml and adjust its content.

Here is the example configuration:

imap:
    connections:
        example_connection:
            mailbox: "{localhost:993/imap/ssl/novalidate-cert}INBOX"
            username: "email@example.com"
            password: "password"

        another_connection:
            mailbox: "{localhost:143}INBOX"
            username: "username"
            password: "password"
            attachments_dir: "%kernel.project_dir%/var/imap/attachments"
            server_encoding: "UTF-8"

        full_config_connection:
            mailbox: "{localhost:143}INBOX"
            username: "username"
            password: "password"
            attachments_dir: "%kernel.project_dir%/var/imap/attachments"
            create_attachments_dir_if_not_exists: true # default true
            created_attachments_dir_permissions: 777 # default 770
            server_encoding: "UTF-8"

If you're using Symfony to connect to a Microsoft 365 business environment, there's a good chance you'll want to connect to a shared mailbox. In that case you need to specify the parameters authuser and user. Where shared_account is the username without domain, like:

imap:
    connections:
        example_connection:
            mailbox: "{outlook.office365.com:993/imap/ssl/authuser=first.last@example.com/user=shared_account}Root/Folder"
            username: "email@example.com"
            password: "password"

Usage

With autowiring

In your controller:

<?php

namespace App\Controller;

use SecIT\ImapBundle\Service\Imap;
use Symfony\Bundle\FrameworkBundle\Controller\AbstractController;

class IndexController extends AbstractController
{
    public function indexAction(Imap $imap)
    {
        $exampleConnection = $imap->get('example_connection');
        $anotherConnection = $imap->get('another_connection');

        ...
    }

    ...
}

With service container

In your controller:

<?php

namespace App\Controller;

use SecIT\ImapBundle\Service\Imap;
use Symfony\Bundle\FrameworkBundle\Controller\Controller;

class IndexController extends Controller
{
    public function indexAction()
    {
        $exampleConnection = $this->get('secit.imap')->get('example_connection');
        $anotherConnection = $this->get('secit.imap')->get('another_connection');

        ...
    }

    ...
}

From this point you can use any of the methods provided by the php-imap library. For example

$exampleConnection = $this->get('secit.imap')->get('example_connection');
$exampleConnection->getMailboxInfo();

To quickly test the connection to the server you can use the testConnection() method

// testing with a boolean response
$isConnectable = $this->get('secit.imap')->testConnection('example_connection');
var_dump($isConnectable);

// testing with a full error message
try {
    $isConnectable = $this->get('secit.imap')->testConnection('example_connection', true);
} catch (\Exception $exception) {
    echo $exception->getMessage();
}

Be aware that this will disconnect your current connection and create a new one on success. In most cases this is not a problem.
