Save Draft Outlook Mail Message : Operation aborted (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80004004 (E_ABORT))

I’m using StudioX Community Edition and I have created a workflow to save a mail from Desktop Outlook App to the same mail as Draft. The workflow runs successfully when I run it first time but after that it shows error - “Operation aborted (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80004004 (E_ABORT))”.

Please suggest.

Hi @Chitra_Sharma

Check while running the process whether the outlook is opened!


Yes, it is opened.


Try closing and run it once!


It’s working. Thank you!
But why is it mandatory to close the Outlook before running it ? Please explain.

Hi @Chitra_Sharma

since you re interacting with the outlook in foreground instances may be running background so that a root cause similar to using read range workbook activity with worksheets Open!

If you found useful mark the post as solution you prefer!

Happy Automation!



Thanks @pravin_calvin.
