I'm using a flow to process Outlook 365 email attachments and add them to a SharePoint List.
Flow works great except when an email has an email as an attachment.
An email attachment is not being recognized as an attachment... I've even tried using the out of the box template available, if it has images, pdf, documents, etc it works fine, if you have an email attached thou it gets ignored, it doesn't even show as an attachment.
Test email -> attachments included: image1.jpg, image2.jpg, reference-email.msg
Total attachments above: 3,
Total recognized attachments: 2 (only the images, reference-email.msg is not acknowledged as attachment.
Anyone has experienced a similar condition? any way to fix this?
--- Edit: ---
It seems the connector does not come with this feature, therefore it is not possible, which I believe is a bug in the connector. A message was added to the "I found a bug" forum for followup.
-- Edit 2: --
Reply from Microsoft Support Team indicate email are considered "attachment items" not "attachments" (however weird that sounds) and the connector does not recognize them as true attachments to be saved.
If you are ok with exporting the email in .eml format and using it this way, there is a post with instructions on how to do it:
A suggestion of an API call is the closes to a solution (see replies for more info). An API call seems not to be able to process email .msg attachments either from what I gather on the reply from the Microsoft Support Team guy.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Email attachments are not treated as attachments. See below response from When a new email arrives.
There is not much detailed documentation about this. Can't confirm this is a bug or not.
Your alternate option is zip the email then send as attachment.
