Convert .eml to mailMessage and save attachment

Hi All,

My script downloads outlook email as .eml format. This has an excel file as an attachment inside which I need to separate. To achieve this, I converted the .eml file into MailMessage object by using UiPath activity called “Read Email from Saved File to Object”. I then tried to extract the attachment from this MailMessage object by using “save attachment” activity, same way its suggested here: How to retrive attachments from .eml file.

However its not working. I want to separate the attached excel file with the same name. Could someone guide me with a bit detailed steps?

Thank you!

could you provide screenshot for both activities? Read Saved email to object and Save Attachments?

Thank you very much for your reply. Please have a look how I used the “Read Email from Saved File to Object” activity

And here the “Save attachments” to get the excel file from the above .eml

Thank you for your cooperation.

Hi jahidKM,

What package and version are you using?

I can’t find the “Read saved email to object” activity.


Hi Daniel,

I think jahidKM meant this package: Read Email from Saved File to Object - RPA Component | UiPath Marketplace | Overview

For some reason, I could not browse this package from Studio, so I downloaded it from parkatplace az a nupkg, and manually uploaded into Orchestrator as a library package.

I was looking for exactly for the same issue and it works like a charm.
