Win32::OLE works great for accessing Outlook from Perl, with the below iterating over all the messages in your Inbox (but possibly not sub-folders).

#!perl use strict; use warnings; use Win32::OLE 'in'; use Win32::OLE::Const 'Microsoft Outlook'; # olFolderInbox my $outlook = Win32::OLE->GetActiveObject('Outlook.Application') or do { my $reason = Win32::FormatMessage(Win32::GetLastError()); die "Cannot get active Outlook object: $reason"; }; my $namespace = $outlook->GetNamespace('MAPI'); if (my $folder = $namespace->GetDefaultFolder(olFolderInbox)) { print $folder->Name, "\n"; foreach my $email (in $folder->Items) { print " ", $email->Subject, "\n" if $email->Subject eq 'Build 50.2'; # Do something with $email. } }

However, if you do plan on doing something further with $email once you've found the right message, it is essential that you use ActivePerl's OLE browser, thumb through the MSDN Library and/or Google liberally for example usage as knowing what to access or look for in the OLE objects is 99% of the battle!


Update: s/ eq /\n if $email->Subject eq /; # oops

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
