Hi,
Requirement: - I want to mail some users with a text message body retrieved from a file in a specific location.

Details: - I need the contents inside a text file to be inserted as a text inside the mail message body which I intend to send to selected users.

Workaround: - I created Read File task and manually and linked to the text file in C directory. Then created mail task , but don't know how to bring in the output of read file into the mail message content.

Please Help !

If the output from the file was in the task immediately before the mail task, you can just paste this code into the message body:

{TASK(PrevTask,StdOut)}

You need to use the Variable browser to point out the Task you need output from.

Just copy/paste the Variable - no need to select.
