    I have just installed phplist to send my weekly newsletter but
    PHPlist needs the IMAP functions in PHP in order to connect to the mailbox. I have checked myinstalation and IMAP is installed on the server but the php module seems not to be.

    How can I install or enable the iap module for php?

    Install the php-imap package from your linux distribution and then reload or restart apache.

    The following:

    sudo apt-get install php5

    returns the message

    Package php5-imap is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source.

    what am i doing wrong

    Please run
    apt-get update
    and try to install the package again.

    it's not enabled by default so enable it with:

    php5enmod imap
