Hi i am trying to get attachment name from the outlook mail. but for some reason i couldnt get it.
here is the error
“message”: “Write line: Index was out of range. Must be non-negative and less than the size of the collection.\r\nParameter name: index”,
Attached the workflow
I am sure the email has attachment.GetMerchantRequestEmail.xaml (1.9 KB)
if you want the name of the attachment the use below expression
in the above expression item represent the single mail.
and your workflow is blank .
message": “Write line: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.”,
With this addition CType(item.Attachments.FirstOrDefault,system.Net.Mail.Attachment).Name.
Attached the workflow nowReadMerchantEmails.xaml (14.0 KB)
Attachments is the collection of Attchment you got from mail.
strAttachmentName= (From p In Attachements
it is working fine , you will get the error if your mail doesn’t have the attachment, so before that you can do a check item.attachments.any
Hi Rishi, thanks for your reply! i did a boolean check for item.attachments.any it is throwing false though there is an attachment in email everytime
Am not sure if you guys have encountered the same issue on any scenario.
I have attached my get outlook mail properties screenshot.
Outlook version : 2013

Microsoft Windows 10 Enterprise 64-bit

Uipath mail activity package version : 1.2.6863.29868
Please let me know your thoughts.

Do you guys is this because the security constraints of the outlook ?
I think you are trying to use the company mailbox , there are lots of security check on the company mailbox so you won’t get the expected result. I will suggest you to try to use the same code on your personal mailbox or check with your company security team anyhow they won’t change their security policy.
Agree @Rishi1 i will check with my security team
It’s filtering on Subject, From and Attachmentname.

@Sakshi_Jain - please open a new forum query instead of adding your query in old posts.
Please do not post samw query in multiple old posts …
@prasath17 is kind of right. It’s usually better to make a new query for it. However, the answer is alreay given in the file I shared above. Good luck @Sakshi_Jain!
This was the solution for me, changing Attachment to system.Net.Mail.Attachment
