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

Re: E-Mail Subfolders

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

Re: E-Mail Subfolders

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 ?

Re: E-Mail Subfolders

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.

Re: E-Mail Subfolders

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.

Re: E-Mail Subfolders

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.

Re: E-Mail Subfolders

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.

Re: E-Mail Subfolders

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?
