ZendMail vs. PHP IMAP Functions

May 26th, 2011

The library in the Zend Framework can be very useful by itself in applications.  And frequently we do use it, or portions of it,  in applications that do not use the Zend Framework.  However, this is not the case with the ZendMail component.  We have found the PHP IMAP functions to be substantially more robust than ZendMail for providing email functionality within applications.  Because of this, even when we do write a site using ZendFramework, we will use the PHP IMAP functions and not ZendMail.
