Email attachments that originated in another email not able to be displayed

I have a flow that takes the attachments off of an originating email and attaches them to a new email (in essence creating a forwarding).  I am using the ContentBytes field to retrieve the file content of the original email's attachments and, along with the data in the Name field, create the array.  While the email client sees that there is an attached picture, it cannot display it.  I have tried with and without quotes, base64, and a myriad of other ideas.  Any help?



Thanks in advance.

@EMtpetek ,


I have seen several people complaining of embedded image issues.

While there is a "correct way" of achieving it as described below:

Power Automate: Embed an image in an email – Share SharePoint Points ! (


I personally stay away from embedding the images. Instead, I copy images to a SharePoint library and reference them via the dynamic link

<img src="link to image" />

Of course, you need to ensure the users have READ access to the file. External users might be a challenge.

If you just wanted to forward the email (including the attachments) you can use Forward an email (V2) and just put the email you want to forward the email to. You'll need to set Yes for Include Attachments.

While this worked to produce an email with an image, the resulting email was pretty ugly.  Thanks for the idea, though.

I tried this.  While Outlook handled and showed the embedded picture, the recipient didn't/couldn't.

You can make it prettier using css
