The Retrieve Value from Email Gadget action will pull values from an email when used within a screen that is being customized for the Outlook Email Gadget.

Because the Outlook Email Gadget allows for customizable screens, this action provides a way to get values from the email itself, for example, the email address.

If this action is used on a screen that is not part of the email gadget, then a blank value is returned.
