Sending Email on Else condition


Am trying to practice on a small project of mine and i got stuck at a point where if there is no attachment or the title is wrong, i need it when it meets the “else” condition to send an Email to them telling them their email haven’t met the requirements

So in your else section, you can use send outlook message with the relevant details.

To identify if there attachments you can use item.Attachments.count > 0.
