POP 3 client is a PHP class that allows you to access mail boxes using the POP3 protocol. It provides a stream wrapper class for retrieving messages like files using the PHP fopen function, establishes secure connections using TLS, accesses servers using normal and APOP login methods, supports authentication mechanisms such as PLAIN, LOGIN, CRAM-MD5, NTLM (Windows or Linux/Unix via Samba) via the PHP SASL library, and supports listing of message sizes, retrieval of a message at once, separating the headers from the body, retrieving a message in small chunks to not exceed the available memory, and deleting messages.
This is a PHP class that attempts to validate a given e-mail address at three levels: matching the address against a RFC compliant regular expression, verifing the existence of the destination SMTP server by verifying the respective DNS MX record, and connecting to that server to see if the given address is accepted as a valid recipient. The class also features a debugging output option that lets you see the remote SMTP server connection and data exchange dialog to see the real cause why an apparently valid address may not be accepting messages.
The adventure PHP framework (APF) is a utility to implement object oriented and generic PHP Web applications. It allows the developer to create programs in compliance with approved software design patterns, and the code base already has answers to many everyday problems. The framework cannot be described as an application that only has to be configured, but rather as a technical basis and design guide for the design of software. Further, it introduced many concepts and efficiency tools already well known in the Java community.
PHP OAuth API authorizes user access using the OAuth protocol. It abstracts OAuth 1.0, 1.0a, and 2.0 in the same class. It provides built-in support for popular OAuth servers: Bitbucket, Box.net, Disqus, Dropbox with OAuth 1.0 and 2.0, Eventful, Facebook, Fitbit, Flickr, Foursquare, github, Google with OAuth 1.0a and OAuth 2.0, Instagram, LinkedIn, Microsoft, Reddit, RightSignature, Salesforce, Scoop.it, StockTwits, SurveyMonkey, Tumblr, Twitter, VK, Withings, XING, and Yahoo!. Every other OAuth server is supported by setting an endpoint URLs and other parameters using specific class variables. The class can also send requests to an API using the previously-obtained OAuth access token. For servers which support offline access, the class can renew expired tokens automatically using refresh tokens.
Extract Name from Email Address extracts a person's name from an email address header. It uses certain heuristics to evaluate common ways people put their names in email addresses to split the name into its multiple parts. A dictionary of common names may be used to assure the extracted names are part of the actual person's name.
