Use item.Headers(“HTMLBody”) to get the mail body from the mail

Hi @Shoebmd

Do you get a blank value or an error message while trying to retrieve the body of your emails?

Could you please post a screenshot of the ‘Get IMAP Mail Messages’ properties panel?

You could be able to removing the HTML content if do as i mentioned below

create a new string variable(new_mailBody) and assign the entire entire thing given below by replacing original_mailbody with mailmessage body.

Please refer this

bro what is the thing i have to write by replacing (original_mailbody)

please tell

Hi @Shoebmd,

I hope this link is useful to you. Very similar problem, if you follow the steps you can come to a conclusion.


here item.Headers(“HtmlBody”) will be the Original_mailbody.

new_mailBody = Convert.ToString(Regex.Replace( original_mailbody , “<[^>]+>|&nbsp”, string.Empty)).Replace(“&#8203”,string.Empty).Replace(“v:* {behavior:url(#default#VML);}”,string.Empty).Replace(“o:* {behavior:url(#default#VML);}”,string.Empty).Replace(“w:* {behavior:url(#default#VML);}”,string.empty).Replace(“.shape {behavior:url(#default#VML);}”,string.Empty)

Give onee assign activity and create a varibale like new_mailBody and instead of original_mailbody replace it with item.Header(“HtmlBody”)

then new_mailBody will be holding the plain text from the mail.
