Search IMAP mailbox by date and time

Feb 15 '13 at 14:21


In the chilkat docs, the article entitled:

"(IOS) Search IMAP Mailbox for Email Matching Criteria"

When searching for email with date criteria, you can use a search string like:

betweenDates = @"SENTSINCE 15-Feb-2013";

my question is, is there any way to also filter on time, so that per the above string we could get just email sent since 15-Feb-2013 at 2 p.m. I have tried adding various time strings, military times, no avail, no emails are returned if I try to search with date and time.

Thank you in advance,



I don't think the IMAP specs allow that, see
