Hi @ashwini.mali

While using the Get Outlook Mail Messages activity, go to the property & apply the following filter:

"[ReceivedTime] > '" + DateTime.Now.AddMinutes(-15).ToString("MM/dd/yyyy HH:mm:ss") + "'"

Hope this helps,
Best Regards.

"[ReceivedTime] > '" + DateTime.Now.AddMinutes(-15).ToString("MM/dd/yyyy HH:mm:ss") + "' AND Subject:'UiPath SMTP Activity Testing'"

Try above solution but it not read any message body,what is mean by received time ,I mean its function or what ? @arjunshenoy

Please replay

Hi @ashwini.mali

Try this-

Add a For Each activity to iterate through each mail message retrieved by the previous activity. Within the For Each loop, use an If activity to check the SentDate property of each mail message. Compare it with the current time minus 15 minutes.

mailMessage.SentDate > DateTime.Now.AddMinutes(-15)


Hi @ashwini.mali ,

Try the below in filter:

"[ReceivedTime] >= '" + DateTime.Now.AddMinutes(-15).ToString("MM/dd/yyyy HH:mm tt") + "' AND [Subject] = '(UiPath SMTP Activity Testing)'"


ReceivedTime is function ? dynamically store received time

Try Above solution but not work for me

Can you check if the email is already read, or the subject is proper.


Checked ,mail was not read and subject is also right

@ashwini.mali ,

Was the email received in last 15 mins?
