I am trying to use the "Run a C# script" action, but for some emails I get this "parameter 'address' cannot be an empty" error before the C# code begins to run while other emails work just fine:
Error. The parameter 'address' cannot be an empty string.
Parameter name: address.

Any ideas about what is causing the error or how I can prevent it?

Update: Upgrading from Email Parser 4.6 to Email Parser 4.7 beta has resolved this issue for me.

Hi there,

I think that this is a bug that was already fixed in the next version (which will be released in a couple of weeks). Can you give the beta version a try and let me know if the problem still happens?

You can download it at https://www.EmailParser.com/beta

It can be installed on top of the old version, it will update it and keep your current settings
Thank you for the quick reply. I was using Email Parser 4.6 (4.3 also had the problem), but just upgraded to Email Parser 4.7 beta and it seems to have resolved the issue for me :)
