Not specified.

Comment 6 Joe Orton 2019-06-12 14:41:11 UTC
The php "imap" extension uses the C library from the UW IMAP project which is not included in Red Hat Enterprise Linux (since 7), since the upstream project is no longer active (there has not been an upstream release since 2007).  We recommend customers move to pure-PHP implementations of IMAP.

Comment 7 RHEL Program Management 2019-06-12 14:41:13 UTC
Development Management has reviewed and declined this request. You may appeal this decision by reopening this request.
