On Ubuntu 14.04+, you need to first install with apt-get:

apt-get install php5-imap

However it's not enabled by default so enable it with:

php5enmod imap

To install the IMAP module on Red Hat Linux Enterprise 4 (RHEL4):
- Open a terminal window
- If you're not root, become root with su
- type:
RPM -i php-imap
(RPM will download, install and resolve dependencies)
- restart your web server with:
service httpd restart

I hope this helps newbies (like me).

This applies to SUSE Linux

When I did "php -m" at the bash prompt, imap WAS listed as installed, however the results of <?php echo phpinfo(); ?> DID NOT have imap anywhere? All the *.ini files were processed from the \etc\php5\conf.d directory EXCEPT the imap.ini file.

I fixed this by adding to the file \etc\php5\apache2\php.ini the line:

... even though a file called imap.ini contained that same entry in \etc\php5\conf.d?

Explicitly entering the in the php5.ini file fixed - you do have to restart PHP (reboot) after making the entry....

All is well now.

In ArchLinux, a php package provides this module, but it is disabled by default.
Simply uncomment a line (remove semicolon) in /etc/php/php.ini:



and then, restart PHP.
