Could not extract "From" or "To" parameters from RetrievedMails in "Retrieve email messages from Outlook" action.

Using "Retrieve email messages from Outlook", I could not extract "From contains" or "To contains", even though I can extaract Subject contains or Body contains from the Outlook e-mail.

For some stupid reason, it is not .From.

 

I think it’s .’From’ or something like that. I asked the same question about 3-6 months ago, so you should be able to find it.

I have already read this one

https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Connecting-To-Data/Cant-put-the-quot-from-quot-and-quot-body-of-...

But it was about Power Automate topic.

My concern is about PAD.

For example, I can use RetrivedEmail[0].cc or RetrivedEmail[0].subject,

but I can not use RetrivedEmail[0].To or RetrivedEmail[0].From in PAD script after extracting outlook E-mail.

It may be "reserved keywords" such as repeat, wait, call or times.
