Each time I run this code, only some emails are moved.  I have to run it 3 to 5 times to get all of them moved.

 For Each oItem In oFolder.Items
    If TypeName(oItem) = "MailItem" Then
        If Left(oItem.Subject, 31) = "Information about your order (#" And oItem.ReceivedTime > #11/23/2014# Then
            oItem.Move oDestFolder
            Debug.Print oItem.Subject
        End If
    End If
 Next

Try moving them in reverse order. When you move items out of a collection it stuffs the indexing up.

See code below... just written here, not tested but should work. I do this on a regular basis with Outlook mailitems.

itemCount = oFolder.items.count
 For i from itemcount to 1 step -1
set oItem = ofolder.items(i)
    If TypeName(oItem) = "MailItem" Then
        If Left(oItem.Subject, 31) = "Information about your order (#" And oItem.ReceivedTime > #11/23/2014# Then
            oItem.Move oDestFolder
            Debug.Print oItem.Subject
        End If
    End If
 Next i
