    Did you assign the Attachment Folder with a valid path in the action block? You may get more help if you can provide additional details on what you have tried.

    Hi Paul,

    I needs to access attachment Folder details from outlook .

    So trying to access outlook using web URL by passing user credentials on URL itself.

    My question is possible to access outlook attachment from read mail action block ?

    Thanks in advance.

    The read mail action is used to read emails from a mail server, not from an email client. You'd need to setup a connection to your Exchange or other mail server (Data Services --> Connections) and the related credentails (Security Services --> Credential Stores) as required by the action block. Any attachments retrieved go to the path specified in the action block (db:\\Project\path or web:\\Project\path).

    If you really want to automatically read attachments from Outlook, as you say, maybe someone else can comment...

    Hi Paul,

    Thanks for your inputs . Let me put in other way ,

    I needs to pick attachment specific to outlook account using read mail action block.

    Tried with following methods

    Updated data servers--> Connections

    Server - Mail server details

    port - port details

    Protocol - tried with POP3 & imap4

    On Read mail Action block updated below

    Connection alias

    Credential alias

    Attachment path - https://outlook.office365.com/owa/XXXX.com/

    Still on read mail action block getting error message "[ERROR] [Read_Mail_0]Unable to read mail Exception: [No provider for POP3]"

    Same approch works fine with send mail action block . Any specific configuration are to be followed ??

    Regards,
