MessageID changes when Moving an Email

As part of my flow I need to move an email from one folder to another.


Office365 seems to do this by creating a new meassage and destroying the old as the MessageID changes during this operation.  This means any future operations on MessageID fail.  Does anyone know of an "In flow" way of getting around this?  Currently I am using the arrival of the mail into the new folder to trigger a second flow.  Tying this together though is not easy as there is no unique identifier to operate on.  I am thus reduced to hoping...


Does anyone know if I can get access to the new messageID?  Or have another way around this?

Re: MessageID changes when Moving an Email

Thanks for posting.

I didn't notice that.


I think you should be able to get a new Message ID content with the Move Action, just choose the Message ID from the Move file action, see if that helps.
