NAME

Email::PST::Win32 - Writing and updating PST files using Outlook Redemption on Windows

SYNOPSIS

        # Open an existing or new PST file

        my $pst = Email::PST::Win32->new(
                filename     => 'path/to/file.pst',
                display_name => 'My PST File',
        );

        # Add an MIME file to the PST

        my $file_path   = 'c://path/to/source/Inbox/Important/1.eml';
        my $folder_path = 'Inbox/Important';
        my $type        = index(lc $file_path, 'drafts')>0 ? 'note' : 'post';
        $pst->add_mime_file( $file_path, $folder_path, $type );

        # Errors may occur when high numbers of items are added.
        # A count_per_session > 0 will determine when to close and
        # reopen the PST file. The default value is 1000.

        $pst->count_per_session( 2000 );

        # Get number of MIME files added

        my $count = $pst->instance_counter;
        
        # Close the PST file

        $pst->close;
        

DESCRIPTION

This is a wrapper for using the Outlook Redemption (http://www.dimastr.com/redemption/) library to create and update PST files. However, while Outlook Redemption is a general purpose library, this module is currently limited to creating and updating PST files with MIME files located on the file system. Additional capabilties may be added in the future.

Requirements

This module requires Win32::OLE and Outlook Redemption.
