Move Outlook Mail Message: The specified folder does not exist

Hello, I have read many posts on this issue but have not found a working solution.

Specifically in my scenario I am working with in a Shared Mailbox.


I am getting the error on a Move Outlook Mail Message activity within the scope of a Get Outlook Mail Message activity.


The Get Outlook Mail Message works without error, it us only running into the issue when trying to Move the current mail item to a subfolder.

Further more, this activity worked without issue when it was run on my desktop which is using Microsoft 365 Apps for enterprise, but has stopped working when trying to run it on a virtual machine that is using Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2016

Please let me know if you see an issue in my implication or if there is a difference in the way the activity works between the versions of outlook

This error seems to reoccur after after an update to UiPath Studio. (My current version is 2022.10.2). The issue seems to go away when I edit the “Move Outlook Mail Message” activity and then recompile run. Perhaps another update is required to iron out this random bug?
