But then get the following error message:

I have Outlook desktop app configured with several accounts. But with this UiPath exercise I only get the “Default Email Account” option. From what I understand in the documentation the dropdown will have all your configured Outlook accounts to select from. This is not working.

Hello,

Could you please try and restart outlook and studio :slight_smile: I faced the same issue but then I found out that Outlook does not publish the changes made to the stored accounts over the interop unless a restart is performed. If this is not the case them could you please provide us with the logs :slight_smile: they are found in %localappdata%/UiPath/Logs

Regards,
Dragos.

check also that the datafile is named the same as the outlook account, case sensitive also

I am facing the same issue, i.e. can’t see my outlook account. This is the error message. Could you please advise?

Try to type one of these names in the account property of the outlook card, casesensitive :

take the name from the Name and type it into the card or the name of the file from Location and type it into the card

Thank you Dragos for looking into this.

Here is the log file.

Kind regards,

Suresh
