Hi @Venusha_Sree
Please fallow these steps.
First I want clear that please don’t create folder with current Datetime. Because when you will try to download more than 2 emails attachments or anything. Its more than 70 percent chance your folder will be replaced.

So avoid from this issue. Make Folder with combination of Mail received data+SenderName.

Follow these steps.
1- use get mail messages activity.
2- for each loop over mail messages.
3- use assign activity to get mail received date.
→ Item.Headers(“Date”)
4- use another assign activity to get sender name
→ Item.sender.displayname.tostring
5- use create folder activity and placed FolderPath+sendername + DateTime

If you face any issue I can help in code as well

Hi @Venusha_Sree
First of sorry, I have got a chance today
Here is Code. In code we are making folder with sendername plus received to avoid
replacement of folder in case two users are send email at same time.
CreateFolderWithDateAndSenderName.xaml (9.5 KB)

Can we get the fraction of seconds from the received date. I am looking right now like (dd/MM/yyy hhmmssfff). Please help me out on this.
