Hi @tkiran

Main.xaml (5.5 KB)

Please find the sample

also attaching expression here …make sure you use wont miss any word while replacing

Text.Replace("[If Applicable]", "")


Can you pls help me how to do it in

Why are you using the outlook interface, we have an activity called send outlook mail message, just pass the proper variables and values in the activity, not hard to use

But if you want to do it, just use a get text and read the text from the mail, the use the replace method to remove the string you need, and finally use a type into activity with empty field property activated


Try this @tkiran


@tkiran May I know what actions you are trying to perform here

Are you reading the body of the email that you receive ?
If this is the case, then you can use an activity called Get Outlook Mail Message from where you can read the unread emails and also the details related to it (Body, header etc). Once you read the email then you can replace or ignore [if applicable]

Are you trying to send an email ?
If this is the case, then you can use send SMTP mail message where in the UiPath code you can ignore [if applicable] when sending an email
