Expand an Exchange distribution list?

We have an inbox that receives emails from multiple processes and different flows are triggered based on either the sender or the recipient email address.

One of our flows is not always running as desired because the recipient is one of many Distribution Lists - since that doesn't exactly match the recipient we are looking for, the flow exits early.  

Is there a way we can expand the recipient list to see all emails contained within it, and also of any DLs embedded in it?  

I found a separate example of how to expand a DL with an HTTP call to the Graph API, but that will require an upgraded Flow license before long - is there some other way of getting this data?

Re: Expand an Exchange distribution list?

Hi @JJ_in_atlanta,

 

I have tried it on my side. There is currently no way to get the email of all the members contained in the distribution list by the existing action(that your license can use) of Flow.

I am afraid there is currently no way to achieve the requirements.

If you want such a feature to be supported by MS Flow, please submit your thoughts to Flow idea:
