Flag email - Message Id not showing

Hi guys,

 

So, I tried to use the "Flag email" action. And to flag the email, you need the Message Id, right? but on the dynamic content, only the body is shown, and no Message Id. Is this a bug? or is there something wrong with my flow?

Re: Flag email - Message Id not showing

Hi @julieann,

 

I agree with what @faustocapellanj mentioned, the dynamic content Message Id is not generated until the email arrives in the inbox.


If you are trying to flag an email that sent out by the flow, you could consider adding another trigger “When a new email arrives” in the flow, then select the Sent items for the Folder field.


Then it would be able to select Message Id for the Flag email action.


The flow could be configured likes below:

Please have a try with it and feel free reply if you need more help.

Re: Flag email - Message Id not showing

Hi @julieann,

 

I just checked the "Flag email" action, and it seems it can only be used with the "When a new mail arrives" trigger. My assumptions are that since you are sending an email, the Message Id property is not generated until the email arrives in the inbox. Perhaps someone from the Flow team can chime in on my assumptions.
