Download Attachments from Outlook

@venkatmalla6 variable for outlook

@Myshudhage then the output which you stored as mailid but in for each the input you given is email change the input to mailid

@Myshudhage and also in for each activity in properties panel change the argument from object type to net.mail.messages

i have changed the properties as well if possible can you share your email id so that i can share my program with you ?? for better convenience

@Myshudhage i sent you mailid have you seen that.


I am struggling with downloading attachment.

I am not sure , where i am doing wrong.


yes i have and mailed you back as well @venkatmalla6

@md.ahtesham are you getting any error or it just simply closing.

its simply closing that it has been executed
but there is no op in my attachment folder

It is not giving any error , if you check the last screenshot over there i am able to get email subject but even though attachment is present , it is giving value as 0 .

@venkatmalla6 - Can you please check at your end on community edition if it is working .
I am using Community -2019.7
mail.Activity - 1.5

i am suspecting it as kind of new bug , earlier it was working and infact i have automated a lot of process on email.
