How can you count the number of meeting invite responses in a specific outlook folder?

I’ve have attempted to count the number of emails contained it that folder but it does not seem to include responses to meeting invites. I have tested this by having only meeting invites in said folder for which the result was 0, and separately by adding a classic email to the folder, for which the result was 1. So it counts normal emails but not responses to invites?

I have tested with the “onlyunreadmails” to no avail.

How can I get the invites to be counted as well?

Would appreciate any advice here thanks :slight_smile:

I have the same question. And the use case described is so common. I feel UiPath should provide a way to process unread Outlook invites like regular emails.

Hi @jnthn and @alexett,

Can you please elaborate your case with example please.

Quick workflow to illustrate the problem:

  • Prerequisite:
    -Make sure you have at least one unread meeting invite in your Outlook mailbox.
    -For this example, my mailbox contains 1 unread meeting invite and 2 unread emails.
  1. Get Outlook Mail Messages
    Options: OnlyUnreadMessages -> checked
    Output: var myMail (type: System.Net.Mail.MailMessage)
  2. Write Line
    myMail.Count.ToString

Expected value: 3

Actual value: 2

Conclusion: Unread meeting invites are not counted.
