E-Mail Subfolders

Is it possible to use Subfolders for the item "on new mail". My folder in Office 365 Outlook is for example:

 

Inbox (German Posteingang)

Subfolder: 01ToDo

Subfolder2: 05Accouting

 

In the form field "folder path" i tried Inbox/01Todo/05Accounting but i always get the error 404 does not exist.

 

Thanks for help.

Oliver

Okay, after looking at the logs here are my follow up questions.

Is your localte set to non en-US (I see a german annotation in the original query) ?

In that case, Inbox wouldn't be Inbox, so you need to rename it appropriately to the locale and try again.

Re: E-Mail Subfolders

Yes, it is certainly possible to use subfolders for the "on new mail" Office365 connector.

 

Similar to the following format

 

--    Inbox/DL/SampleDL : Where the SampleDL is a folder nested inside DL which is nested inside Inbox

 

From your query, seems like you are using the correct folder format.

 

Is it working for any other subfolders at all ? Can you share the flow id with us please ?

No it doesn't work at all. Just created a new one.

 

If you mean with id the flow name here it is: Save_Billing_OFB

 

Thanks

Okay.

Can you please send me the URL of the page when you are in the designer ?

 

It should be similar to

 

https://flow.microsoft.com/manage/flows/<xxx>

It doesn't look like there are any runs that are available for this Flow.

Can you confirm for me that it is enabled and running ?

Also, where do you get the 404 error ? Can you share me a screenshot ?

Hi,

 

Can you also share your flow id ? The way to do that is to copy paste the browser url when you hve the flow open.

Apologies for the late response.

 

I am guessing that there is an issue with the name of the folder encoding and this could be a potential bug in the email connector.

Do other folders work ? Can you create a folder with out the unicode character (%u00) and try out if it works for you as a work around ? In the meanwhile i will try to investigate this.

I had a really hard time with subfolders.  Strangest thing, I had folder with no special char's in it at all.  Folder was named without quotes "Proactive" could never get flow to read the folder.  I renamed that folder to "AProactive" and now flow sees the subfolder just fine.  Very strange behavior.

I also run into the issue that if I specify a subfolder on an Inbox that has de-de as locale the Flow will fail.

 

Funnily enough - it will work on the root of the mailbox (tested both Outlook.com and Office 365) when I use "Inbox" (in english - Posteingang as displayed in Outlook will not work)

 

The following folder path will fail:

Posteingang

Inbox/test

Posteingang/test

 

The only path working for me is

Inbox

(again - locale is de-de)

Re: E-Mail Subfolders

I'm having the same issue when trying to move mails dynamically in a shared mailbox, based on criteria. I can do it statically when clicking on the folder dropdown, but I need to do some pre processing(includes looking up a sharepoint list) before moving the emails. I don't want to create a 30(possibly) item switch/condition statement in flow.

UPDATE: It seems that I can only move mails from a Shared Mailbox to my local folders dynamically and not within the Shared Mailbox's folders. What are the Flow requirements to make this work within the Shared Mailbox?
