#1

Hi Team,

using TakeScreenshot and SaveImage control i am taking a screenshot and saving in my local drive like “D:\UIPathScreen\Sample.jpg”.

now i want take that image from that location and i want to send a mail to the respective person ?

any one question out of this 3 [SMTP,Outlook and send exchange mail message] which is more use full for sending a mail to the person.

I would use Outlook as the first port of call when sending/receiving emails via UiPath. if you are sending from your main email account you don’t even have to put anything in the account name of the send outlook mail activity

Hi @Djh

please find the attachment of image files i have worked ?

shows error message : “Send SMTP Mail Message : A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond 74.125.130.109:578”


#4

can you try first with Send Outlook Mail Message, as it required less config


#5

Hi @Djh,

i used that also coming different error message as unable to cast COM object.

see the below image file for error ?

Hmm, I’m not too sure with this one, this page suggests its to do with downgrading the outlook software:


but that wouldnt account for the issue with SMTP mail too…

@ovi @Dominic any ideas?

@RaviDevaraj,

  1. SMTP the former one had a connection port issue. It should be 587 - if we are using TLS and 465 - in case of SSL.
  2. Outlook - we need to add the account details as well if I am not wrong.

I think in the newest version, if left blank it should just pick up the outlook account being used by the logged in user account. i could be wrong though…

Send SMTP Mail Message : AuthenticationInvalidCredentials: 5.7.8 Username and Password not accepted. Learn more at

@RaviDevaraj, Two things you need to check,

  1. Confirm that you have entered the right credentials
  2. If you have configured your account for two - step verification then you need to provide the password [one time] that you have generated.
