This is something related to outlook issue I guess
Kindly check once with your admin team and reinstall the outlook and try once
Your uipath workflow looks perfectly fine

And For the error

Remove the account property in the property panel and try once

Kindly try this and let know for any queries or clarification

If it’s a gmail then we can POP3
Of if it’s a outlook then we can use GET EXCHANGE MAIL ACTIVITY

I am using business mail like

does "GET EXCHANGE MAIL ACTIVITY " will work ??

Latest version would be fine buddy
And still GET OUTLOOK MAIL ACTIVITY depends on the outlook
Kindly check with you admin team and pls try further with either of this activity

End task outlook from task manager and then try again.

Even If we do manually we will get this type of popup can click allow and select the value from the drop down manually

Share the filter condition used in the get outlook mail messages activity

Thanks @Sreelatha278

so let’s say we can not hide popup. Right ?

for filter i have just pass email id to download only specific user.

but actually now i am using subject to download but if you solve this one will be better for learn.

also can you please explain why need to close from task manager ? do i need to do this every day ?

no buddy we can handle this popup, we were facing similar issue when we were using get outlook mail activity

To avoid this sort of error we can use GET EXCHANGE MAIL ACTIVITY
kindly try with that activity and let know for any queries or clarification
