Hi @abhishek_rathor
depends on what mail client you are using. For Outlook I would recommend using the keyboard shortcuts and enter them via RPAx. For example: http://www.outsmartoutlook.com/art/save-attachments-with-the-keyboard/2008/10/13/


Open email attachment
Download unread email attachments from outlook using bot tasks?

Yes I am trying to achieve this on outlook . Searching for the right email seems to be the trickier part. Because I may have received multiple mail from that sender and I want action to be taken only on the latest one.

Create a search folder with elements only from that sender. Open that folder and search “has attachment: yes”. Then sort the view by date. First item in that view should be the one where you download the attachment from.
