Hi @richard.ramirez21,

At first glance this is a pretty tricky situation. EML, MSG, and other email formats do not contain human readable text when opened in a text editor. To understand this, try right clicking on your .EML file and selecting “Open With” to open the file in Notepad or Notepad++.

However, there is a roundabout way you can achieve what you want in your Task. Here is the automation flow: open the .EML file, use keystrokes to copy all, use the ClipBoard action to assign the copied value to a variable. Finally log the variable to a csv or txt file. I recommend txt as it will be easier to read and you can perform string manipulations on the content.

Here is my code:


Please let me know if this helps you.
