As far as my knwoledge, imap extension comes as standard with the MS windows php installation. It is needed to enable it in php.ini (configuration file). Most probably, the default php.ini already contains a line to load the extension, but probably it commented out prior(; symbol like that). Just try to change this as,
extension = php_imap.dll
Sometimes, it is required to restart the system.
