Check if the IMAP stream is still active

(PHP 4, PHP 5)

imap_pingCheck if the IMAP stream is still active


bool imap_ping ( resource $imap_stream )

imap_ping() pings the stream to see if it's still active. It may discover new mail; this is the preferred method for a periodic "new mail check" as well as a "keep alive" for servers which have inactivity timeout.
