How to use IMAP in PHP to fetch mail body content?

I can't fetch email body content.

This is my code

/* connect to server */
$hostname = '{myserver/pop3/novalidate-cert}INBOX';
$username = 'username';
$password = 'password';

/* try to connect */
$inbox = imap_open($hostname,$username,$password) or die('Cannot connect to Tiriyo: ' . imap_last_error());
//echo $inbox;
/* grab emails */
$emails = imap_search($inbox,'ALL');

/* if emails are returned, cycle through each... */
if($emails) {

/* begin output var */
$output = '';

/* put the newest emails on top */

/* for every email... */
foreach($emails as $email_number) {
/* get information specific to this email */
$overview = imap_fetch_overview($inbox,$email_number,0);
$message = imap_fetchbody($inbox,$email_number,2);

/* output the email header information */
$output.= '<div class="toggler '.($overview[0]->seen ? 'read' : 'unread').'">';
$output.= '<span class="subject">'.$overview[0]->subject.'</span> ';
$output.= '<span class="from">'.$overview[0]->from.'</span>';
$output.= '<span class="date">on '.$overview[0]->date.'</span>';
$output.= '</div>';

/* output the email body */
$output.= '<div class="body">'.$message.'</div>';

echo $output;

/* close the connection */

When I use to fetch email from Gmail, the email body content is displayed, but once I use my mail server, I can't fetch the body content of email.

Can you help me fix this problem?

I had found solution, Error is with this line

$message = imap_fetchbody($inbox,$email_number,2);

Now, I am using

$message = imap_fetchbody($inbox,$email_number, 1.2);

To receive body content in text/html format

Below i had given datails of available options. This might some one

()Root Message Part (multipart/related)
(1) The text parts of the message (multipart/alternative)
(1.1) Plain text version (text/plain)
(1.2) HTML version (text/html)
(2) The background stationary (image/gif)
