Automate an Exchange server
If your organization uses an Exchange server, WinAutomation enables email handling through the Exchange actions. These actions connect to an Exchange server and can also retrieve, send, or process emails from it.
Connect to an Exchange server
The Connect to Exchange Server action establishes a connection with a specified Exchange server. In its properties, you can specify the Exchange server's version and select whether the server will be detected automatically through the email address.
The server credentials can be set to the Exchange default or specified manually. The established connection is saved to a variable for late use in other Exchange actions.
Retrieve Exchange email messages
The Retrieve Exchange Email Messages action retrieves emails that meet specific criteria from an Exchange server and optionally saves the included attachments on the desktop.
To limit the retrieved emails, filter them according to their parent folder, state, or keywords that are included in various fields.
Send an Exchange email message
The Send Exchange Email Message action creates and sends a new email message through a previously established Exchange server connection. In the action's properties, you can specify the following entities:
- Sender's displayed name
- CC and BCC recipients
- Subject and the body of the new email
Optionally, the email body can be written in HTML, and the email can contain attachments. In the Attachment(s) field, enter the file's path or a variable that contains a file or a list of files.
Process Exchange email messages
The Process Exchange Email Messages action runs a series of essential operations in the previously established Exchange server connection. More precisely, options to delete, mark as unread, and move messages to other folders are available.
This action accepts as input a list of emails, which is specified in the Retrieve Email Messages From Outlook action.
