Flow - Checking if an mail from an specific sender is received

Hi together, 

 

is it possible to build an flow, which is checking if I have received an mail from an specific mail address ?

The outcome should be sent also via mail to me. 

 

Many thanks in advance, 


Robin

Hi @robin5003414 

Assume you're looking to read the mails from shared mailbox, make sure you set from filter so it's triggered for specific email.

and you can set your email id in forward mail action.

Hello @robin5003414 ,

please follow these steps:

1. Add a "Do until" control, put the "From" value as first parameter and the specific email address as second parameter:

then click on "Edit in advanced mode", and you'll see the following expression:

2. Copy it, and in the Trigger select the 3 dots and "Settings":

3. In the "Trigger Conditions" put the expression and click on "Done":

4. Finally, you can remove the "Do until" control previously created.

 

So, the flow will be fired only if the email is received by that specific email address.

HI @MarconettiMarco , 

 

how is the flow informing me, when I do not have received any mail ? 

Thanks, 


Robin

 

@robin5003414 ,

in this case the flow is fired only if you receive the email form that specific sender. Otherwise, if you want to be informed that you receveid an email not from that sender, don't put any condition in the trigger, you should add a "Condition" control after the trigger:

But in this case, the flow will be triggered every time you receive an email.
