Condition to filter out email signature images

Hi Everyone,


Apologize in advance as I'm new to Power Automate. 


Trying to: Get email, create task, upload attachments to SharePoint, create links, update task detail with attachment. 

Issue: Email signature images come through as attachment. I tried using condition to filter it out as their names are consistent for everyone in the company.


But somehow it just doesn't filter. Here's the screen shots. Thank you for taking a look at this.

@Nash_Chang I tried this on my inbox and seem to work with filtering attachments that do not have "image00" in the filename.

Hi @Nash_Chang 


Could you post a screenshot of your run history to show the attachment names? The IF conditions are case sensitive.

Problem is, because your condition is an or it is going to match with pretty much everything, even the other conditions. That condition will evaluate to true if any match.


Example image001.png would still get through because although your very first condition would filter it, your second one would allow it. I don't know if I am being totally clear, but hopefully you understand.

So short answer is change your "Or" at the top to an "And".


Alternative....better to filter the attachment array before the loop to get rid of all the attachments ending in .png. Faster and simpler.

Yeah here's the screenshot of the last run, but also attaching the screenshot of the attachments. 




Getting rid of attachments ending in .png was the original option, but now we start to have .png coming from the art department...

My initial attempt was to just do one condition if it doesn't start with "image00" but somehow that run would always fail.

so just change the or to an and and it should be right, still feels like there should be a better way to do it.

@krootz I like that, well done. Would also work nicely in a filter to remove them before entering the loop.

That looks beautiful and simple, but this is the message when I tried to save...not sure what I did.

Flow save failed with code 'InvalidTemplate' and message 'The template validation failed: 'The repetition action(s) 'Each_Attachment' referenced by 'inputs' in action 'Condition' are not defined in the template.'.'.

'Each Attachment' is the name I gave my Apply to each loop. You'll have to replace this with whatever name you gave your loop or if you didn't rename,  it will be 'Apply_to_each' or 'Apply_to_each_2', etc.

Got it working, thank you so much!
