Unable to get the sharepoint email alert via Get Outlook mail message

i have setup few alerts in my SharePoint and i am receiving the alerts in my outlook mailbox. i want to monitor for these alerts and update my tracker with the changes.

When i use the “Get Outlook Mail Messages” activity, its retrieving all the mails except SharePoint alerts.

i guess its the difference in the Outlook mail class
-normal mails are of Class: Message.
-Where as SharePoint alerts are of Class: Sharing Message.

For now i have set a rule in Outlook to forward these alerts to myself (this will Forward the alert as normal mail of class: Message). and i am able to retrieve these.

is there any settings that can be changed to get this working?? please help!!! TIA.

Hi @sanjayshaswani, i have the same problem. I tried with forward and run ok, but is not the most efficient solution.
Ηave you found anything new?


Hi @nrok,
