Description of problem:
imap_open function in php fails.

I installed Fedora Core 1 and used Apache/PHP as they come in the 

The imap_open function fails. It tries to check the validity
of the mail server certificate even for NON-SSL sessions. The imap 
server does not like this and refuses the attempt.

This is the same as bug #65694, reported earlier for RH 7.3 and seems 
to be alive still.

It can be "fixed" by appending "/novalidate-cert" to the host name 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
php 4.3.3

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. use Fedora core 1 and Apache/php supplied with it
2. use imap_open to connect to an ordinary pop3 server which does not 
support secure sessions
3. imap_open ("{". $host . ":110/pop3}", $userid, $pass); fails
4. imap_open ("{". $host . ":110/pop3/novalidate-cert}", $userid, 
$pass); works

Is this still reproducible in the 4.3.6 update?

FC1 is no longer supported, in case this was not fixed in the last php
update issued there.
