Are you getting any error?

Or one more thing is, the body of your mail may contains only image

Make sure that the type argument of for each loop activity is System.Net.Mail.Mailmessage
And make sure that we have body content in those mail having the specified filter in the IF condition

You were almost done

Mail body not extracting in message alert box its getting empty

1.each step i am checking with message box like item.to,item.from every thing giving output but item.body is not getting giving empty
2.next further steps i have taken regx and sub-string methods due to mail body is giving empty output finally i am getting startindex is cannot be less than zero and system.Arguments.OutofRange exception i am getting

thanks in advance

yes i am getting error that start index can not be less than zero
system.arguments.outofrange exception i am getting due to mailbody is giving empty output

As you are getting null values for both the strings, if you try trim, split or substring , I mean string manipulations on the empty string, you will get that errors. try removing all those manipulations and loop some 30 - 40 mails. so it will display the body of few mails leaving the mails with no body @gurrapujp

Are you getting the body as null even the body of the message is not empty?

Hi ,

  1. for each loop activity is System.Net.Mail.Mailmessage only

okay let me try in this way

before going to srting manipulations only i am checking whether body is giving content or null
even though the mail body having the content in messagealert box showing null or empty result

where as these from, to is giving correct output

I have tried with empty mail body

its getting same error same issue
