i use the GET OUTLOOK MAIL MESSAGES activity.
In the list created by this activity, i want to retrieve all the “Sender” informations.
But for certain emails, it is not possible… i get an error.
I have tried:
But it doesn’t work.
I am a uipath beginner but it seems that the “sender” value is “null” for certain emails.
Does anyone have an explanation and a solution?

seems like am issue with the outlook cache mechanism to update the contact lists (From addresses). I tried reducing the cache period till the lowest… still sometimes i faced from address missing issue.
To eliminate this slow response - i did the everything on imap activity. it much better and faster. ( if you want to move it to imap → required to open a port imap port (25 / 143) for the mailbox)
Thanks for your responsiveness and this other solution GBK… it seems to be a little too complicated for me

there is a activity called “Get imap mail message” it’s similar to outlook mail activity…
for this require - imap port (25 or 143) and imap mail exchange address like ( imap.company.com)
