in reply to Regarding usage of """use Mail::Outlook;"""" on 64bit OS

Where are you finding this code on cpan which suggests using Win64:: modules? I don't believe they exist, I can't find any when I search. Use Win32 even on the 64bit platform. See also What Windows 64 bit traps are out there?.

Update: fixed some auto correct typos.

    Thanks Marto

    Can you please point me to part of perl script which can be used to read outlook email or you can send some url which can give more details (if you know any)

    Thanks again

      Can you give us more information about the task? Do you actually want to automate Outlook or are you just trying to read (and process) mail stored on the exchange server? Using Super Search will find you examples using modules such as Mail::Box, Mail::Outlook and other for automating email processing.

      Have you considered simply changing line 10 to point to a module which actually exists?

      use Win32::OLE::Const 'Microsoft Outlook';

      N.B. you will have to install this module if your Perl ditribution doesn't already have it.

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
