Search and mark an email as read

We use an example where we are going to search for an email from an individual's mailbox with required inputs and mark it as read.

In this example, our Pipeline activities are as follows:

  1. Searching and email using  Search Email Snap.
  2. Marking an email as read using Mark Email As Read Snap.

Here, let us look into the role of Search Event Snap in this Pipeline.

Search Email Snap

Upon execution, we see an output with the retrieved email.

Here, let us look into the role of Mark Email As Read Snap in this Pipeline.

We mark an email as read. Lets provide input in the Snap Settings and look at the output.
