I have a question. How can I use ImapX to get only the email in a range of dates with hours?

For example SINCE 11-Jan-2013 01:00 PM BEFORE 11-Jan-2013 02:00 PM or SINCE 11-Jan-2013 13:00 BEFORE 11-Jan-2013 14:00.

Thank you.

Good day,

due to some limitations of the IMAP protocol, you can only pass dates in date-day "-" date-month "-" date-year format, which means you cannot filter messages by a specific time on the server.

For more information see the specification: SEARCH command and formal syntax.

This was also mentioned in your previous question:
