Convert an email into an attached file in another mail

Hi everyone

 

I´m trying to create a Flow where connect the emails that I Flag on outlook with a Trello dashboard. I have Set up the flow and it´s working properly at 90%, but the final result isn´t what I expected. The resume´s as follow:

 

1. Flag an email in Outlook

2. Save this mail as a file on my One Drive

3. Use this "file" like attachment in a new mail

4. Send this mail to my Trello Board

5. Open the attached file (.eml) on trello cards

 

The problem that I´m facing it's that when I open the file attached, the email opened it´s in blank. (The ".eml" file it´s in the correct folder and can be opened from there, but not from the file attached in the last email).

 

Hope someone has any suggestions.

Hello @DamonBird365

 

Thanks for your quick response. Yesterday doing some tests, finally, I got the same solution. Even more, I was able to reduce the process to 3 steps (create the file (2) and delay flow were not necessary). Now the Flow it´s working 100%.

 

I tried to replicate the same workflow with Planner, but Power Automate don´t give me options to configure attachments on tasks so I will try to use the same structure as in Trello (use the mail address linked to the boards to create the new tasks).

 

For me, it´s a good option to stop using Outlook as "tasks manager"
