    1. when type «sudo apt-get install php7-imap» or «sudo apt-get install php7.0-imap» I got the next errors:
      E: Unable to locate php7-imap package
      E: Could not find any package with regular expression “php7.0-imap”

      1. Hi Jose.
        What php7 version are you using?
        You should install IMAP ext for your PHP version; so if running PHP 7.4, try running sudo apt-get install php7.4-imap.

        I’ve updated the article to reflect this.

        Let me know if it helps
