When using “Get outlook mail messages” UiPath grabs a list of all messages from outlook. In case one email contains more attachments and one attachment of them is empty (e.g. empty text file) UiPath looses the attachments of this email coming in the list after the empty attachment.
One e-Mail with 8 attachments. All files are the same except the 4th one which is completely empty.
In this case UiPath only recognizes 3 attachments. All attachments listed after the empty attachment are lost!
- Create one email
- Attach an empty file (empty text-file, file-ending is not relevant - in tests i usually used “test.txt”).
- Attach other attachments (same or different files)
!!! THE EMPTY FILE SHOULD BE AT THE BEGINNING OF THE LIST OF ATTACHMENTS !!!
Send this email to an account you can read with outlook from
- Use get Outlook mail messages
- print out the number of attachments attached to the email
All attachments before the empty file are read
All attachments after the empty file are LOST
All attachments are read / available in UiPath
