Flow won't find keyword trigger in email body

I am attempting to build a flow that triggers when an Outlook email is received from my email account and in the body it contains the word "Star". This is just for testing purposes. I am having trouble understanding how to use the "Conditions" field to get the result I want. Here is what I want to have happen:

 

Trigger: When I receive an email from my email address, and

Condition: The body of the email contains the word "Star"

Action: Send an email to my email address with Subject "It worked!" and in the body field, include the Body text of the original email.

 

The part in red returns an error that says INPUTS > Expression result > false.

 

I am not sure what this means, but I bet I am not understanding the condition correctly. How should I structure my condition so that when Flows detects the word "Star" in my email, it triggers the action?

 

The condition is currently set up as [BODY] > contains > "Star"

 

Is this syntax incorrect? Thanks in advance for your guidance. A screenshot is below.

Re: Flow won't find keyword trigger in email body

Thank you for your assistance. The email that I sent contained this in the body:

 

"When you wish upon a Star."

 

This was just for testing. Thank you for confirming it is case sensitive. I think the "." after "Star" caused the condition to fail.

 

I just resent it where "Star" is standing alone, and it seemed to work. Thank you!

Hi @JacobW,

 

With the Condition: The body of the email contains the word "Star"

 

You email body need to have "Star" inside with the capital "S". Flow condition is case-sensitive.

Does it work for strings like 'Star Wars Saga' as well?
Single words worked well for me but not strings including spaces.
Any ideas?

I am having the same issue. When I send myself a test email which includes the work "Sensor" in the body of the email, The condition evaluates as False
