Get Outlook Mail Message: The specified folder does not exist


I have an issue on the Get Outlook Mail Message activity.

I have created an input file in an excel format.

I like to look up the value for the Mail Folder property using the input file, and set up the property in UiPath:


However, I’m getting the error “The specified folder does not exist.”


When I typed “Inbox” in the Mail Folder property, it worked:

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Its showing Folder does not exist because it checks for the folder name with quotes “Inbox” , so remove quotes in the assign activity mailFolder = “”"" + row(2).ToString.Trim + “”"" . Just mailFolder = row(2).ToString.Trim is enough.

And enclose with double quotes only if you pass the value as a String. In your case mailFolder is an variable so you dont have to enclose with double quotes.
