How to clean a mail folder with flow ?

Hello everyone,

 

I would like to build a flow to move automatically all emails from a "Archive folder" to separate folders one time a day like a Outlook rule but one time a day.

 

Is it possible ?

Hi @Anonymous,

 

Do you want to execute Flow every day, move email from one folder to another?

You could use Recurrence as a Trigger to set a time point to trigger Flow every day.

Configure Get emails action to get all the emails in the specified folder, then use Move email action to move the emails to another specified folder.

Take a try.

I tried but i wanted to move the emails in a personnal archive folder that are not accessible with flow so it wont work as expected 😞

Hi @Anonymous,

 

Could you provide details about the "personnal archive folder"?

Maybe some connectors could achieve your needs.

If you are sure that this is a feature that Flow can't support currently, you could submit ideas about the features you are looking for, so it might be considered for future releases.

I'm talking about a archive mail folder that is on outlook online but not on my inbox.

Total newbie too, just wanting to do something really simple, but failed.

I'd like to move emails that are categorized.

 

This is my flow:

The error I get is:

Why did you place some crap to the "Message ID" field?

That's only slightly helpful, thanks.

 

I think I said I had no idea what to do and how to do it and your advice confirms this.  It also helps me understand that there is probably something wrong with what i have in that box.

 

I do hope another correspondent might actually answer my question so I can learn something useful.

Hi @AddemNZ, please don't be offended but I believe before asking you should try to do something yourself - read the docs, do some goggling, play with examples etc.
