Hi Donghai,

Can you share an example with Screenshot or Xaml for the same??

Hi @ShekharRPA
I’m sorry for late to reply.
use the Get IBM Notes Mail Messages activity, then set the MailFolder attribute is “yourmessagefoldername\yourmessagesubfoldername”,and set the Password attribute is your Notes password, it’s will be worked.
I’m sorry that the Xaml is in the Production enviroment,so I can’t share the Screenshot or Xaml.

Actually it is not Sub, It is shared inbox in Lotus notes.

Hi @ShekharRPA
I didn’t test for the share folder.
I have got the right folder name by the VBA code, It can list all the correct folder name, so may be you can try it.
Blow is a example,I have not the IBM NOTES client in my computer,so i can’t test it.
You can test it.

Sub GetAllViews()
Dim aNotes
Dim aDataBase
Dim aView
Dim j As Integer

Set aNotes = CreateObject("Notes.NotesSession")
Set aDataBase = aNotes.CURRENTDATABASE
j = 1
For Each aView In aDataBase.views
    Cells(j, 1) = aView.Name
    Cells(j, 2) = aView.IsFolder
    j = j + 1
Set aNotes = Nothing
Set aDataBase = Nothing
Set aView = Nothing

End Sub

@donghai can you please shared sample workflow for reading mails from sub folder using lotus notes activity. I am also facing same issue

I am sorry for reply this late.
I just uesed it in production envrioment,no sample and IBM NOTES.
But I think it’s easy if you use the english IBM NOTES folder name.
