This isn't a true DASL filter, so you end up having to use ranges, in a sense. Unfortunately, you can't use Contains, DoesNotContain, etc. from the filter object reference, as you would with the Search objects. It's a little different.

The following will help you find a range of subjects all between 'test' and 'tz':

use strict; use Win32::OLE qw(in with); use Win32::OLE::Const 'Microsoft Outlook'; $|++; $Win32::OLE::Warn = 3; my $OL = Win32::OLE->GetActiveObject('Outlook.Application') || Win32::OLE->new('Outlook.Application', 'Quit'); my $NameSpace = $OL->GetNameSpace("MAPI"); my $Folder = $NameSpace->GetDefaultFolder(olFolderInbox); my $Items = $Folder->{Items}; my $findtext = '[Subject] > "test" and [Subject] < "tz"'; my $MailItems = $Items->Find($findtext); while (1) { print $MailItems->{Subject} ."\n"; $MailItems = $Items->FindNext() || last; }
And one should note the following (from the Outlook VB Reference):
Comparison operators allowed within the filter expression include >,<, +<=, >=,= and <>. Logical operators allowed are And Not and Or
Update: Slight modification to search string and Text from Find Object Reference.
