Cannot enter a sender email adress in on new mail trigger

I want to enter a sender email adress in the trigger - see below 

It does not recognize any valid email adress and after saving it is gone away - the thing worked before perfectly with three other flows 


thanks for help

It's only a feeling: there is something between the trigger and the connector to O365 Mailing - it does not verify the email adress - if you enter a email adress other than your own it also does not suggest you an email adresses to choose after entering the first 3 letters - two weeks ago it worked perfectly - a bug or a feature ?

YuppiDu ! It worked 

I entered the following in the definitions.json (like yesterday)


fetch": {
"queries": {
"folderPath": "Inbox",
"to": "office@********.at",
"from": "first.adress@*******.com;manfredg_privat@********.com",
"importance": "Any",
"fetchOnlyWithAttachment": true,
"includeAttachments": true,
"subjectFilter": "Testrechnung"


the flow trigger run one time for each sender and also created two files (PDF only - i entered a new condition before saving (attachment name contains .PDF) ) and saved both attachments into the right folder in onedrive 


@Viktor - i will also try your proposed solution, because than i have not to edit the definition.json  - in the next run i will use your syntax for the subject filtering 

thank you for help


yesterday i did the same and it runned only for one of the two mails (maybe i made a typo) 


by the way - if you look at the trigger extensions it looks like this

@VictorIvanidze  I used your solution with the body/subject  - works perfect with different words in the subject - thx  

Glad to help!

It work with one trigger condition - but not with two - seem to have something to do with or/and - in this cse we have an AND - first condition Subject contains a specific word (out of a list of 3 and the second condition is one of three external email adresses 

I changed it back to my method - entering in JSON
