That used to happen to me until I whitelisted the sending address.  If
people submit spammy links to you, this will happen.

That's an exceedingly poor decision made by the PHP people that they
really ought to reconsider.  Comments starting with # are the very
definition of what comments should start with for about 40 years now. 
Nevertheless, it's nothing to do with TightURL.  Your Linux distro put a
standard comment in your imap.ini file, and the PHP people exercising
very poor judgment, have apparently decided this is deprecated behavior.

Note especially, that TightURL does not require, in fact does not use
IMAP.   You'll see the same thing (or in the error logs) in any script
you run from cron or not.

That certainly should not be happening, and I don't know why it is, but
I'll look into it.
