Can we automate outlook + Without Get Outlook Mail Message Activity

Hi all,

I am trying to automate outlook. I have figured that due to a security policy I cannot read the email subject or body from my outlook.

Is there a way to automate outlook and download attachments from the front end without using mail messages activity.

Has any one done this?


It’s possible using Get Text activities and click activities, but you have to take care of the selectors also

It’s not a suggested way as per best practices

Hope this may help you


Hi @Sairam_RPA !
What about using get imap activity with secureconnection to None ? It still needs more information than get outlook (like servername, port number, mailaddress and password), but maybe it is able in your case to avoid policy problems.

I was able to solve this issue by using Get Exchange Mail Message Activity.

We have to give the following specifications:

  1. Exchange Version: Can get from your IT team.
    2.EmailAutodiscover: Person sending the email.
    3.MailFolder: Generally Inbox.
