Thanks for all help. I’m running through Lesson 11. I can save IMAP messages to my online gmail account without problems.
When I replaced the “Move IMAP Message” activity with a “Save Mail Message” activity, I get the message below:

I have tried different folder locations and adjusting permissions without success. UiRobot.exe and UiStudio.exe are set to run elevated.


SOLVED: I was only entering the folder path of the second field of “Save Mail Message”. The screenshots below illustrate what I did to fix it. It appears “Save Mail Message” requires a file name in addition to a folder name.



In case it helps anyone else, when I left the file extension off and instead used ‘mail.ToString’, the message was saved as “System.Net.Mail.MailMessage”.
