Personally I prefer to use a filter when in VBA where there is an example here ... but someone else is addressing advanced search therein so check out:

One of the last posts in that question is a specific example but here it is as well:

Sub taskFilterCorp()
Dim olFolder As Object
Dim filteredItems As Object
Dim folderItems As Object
Dim sorteditems As Object
Dim strFilter As String
Dim itm As Object

    Set olFolder = Application.Session.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderInbox)
    Set folderItems = olFolder.Items
    strFilter = "@SQL=" & Chr(34) & "urn:schemas:httpmail:subject" & Chr(34) & " like " & "'%" & "corp" & "%'"
    Set filteredItems = olFolder.Items.Restrict(strFilter)
    
    If filteredItems.Count = 0 Then
        MsgBox "No such tasks found"
    Else
        For Each itm In filteredItems
            Debug.Print itm.Subject
        Next
    End If

End Sub

Open in new window


Specifically the requirement was a wildcard search on the subject for the string corp.  Whilst it was within the tasks folder, with the inbox selected above it works for mails exactly the same.

A similar entry from a different question that shows the use of time in the sent items folder is as follows:

    Set myfolder = application.session.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderSentMail)
    strfilter = "[SentOn] >= '" & Format(Date + TimeSerial(0, 0, 0), "ddddd h:nn AMPM") & "'" & " and " & "[senton] <= '" & Format(Date + TimeSerial(23, 59, 59), "ddddd h:nn AMPM") & "'"
    Set olmailitems = myfolder.items.Restrict(strfilter)

Open in new window
