Hi,

is there a way how to start the robot when an email is received? Withou using Orchestrator.

Thanks.

I would set up a rule in Outlook that starts a batch file when you receive the mail. I just tested this and it works perfectly.

This is the rule in outlook

and this is the batch file that runs the robot from the command line

"C:\Users\***\AppData\Local\UiPath\app-17.1.6522\UiRobot.exe" /file:"C:\Users\***\Documents\UiPath\Atea_logical_Exports\Main.xaml"

Update - I see this was disabled for Outlook 2016 users, so if you wish to re-enable this see this article https://www.slipstick.com/outlook/rules/outlook-2016-run-a-script-rules/
