Save email attachment to network drive

I'd like to be able to save an email attachment to a network drive.  We use a third party app to process certain file, and it cannot scan SharePoint or OneDrive folders.  I'm sure there's a way to do this, but I'm not having much luck in my search.

Hi @cjones-0 ,

 

Do you want to save email attachments to Network machines?

 

Connect to File Systems on your local or networks to read from and write to files using the on-premise data gateway.

 

Please check the doc at here:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/connectors/filesystem/

 

Another doc on how to create a connection to File System for your reference:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/logic-apps/logic-apps-using-file-connector

 

Btw, before creating the connection, as @abm  suggested, please install On-Premises data gateway first.

 

Then your flow could be configured likes below:

I think the File-System solutions are exactly what I'm looking for.  The user account that receives these emails has not been provided access to our corporate managed gateway, so I'm still running into issues.  I feel pretty confident that this will work once access is set up though, so thanks to both of you for your input!


 

Hi, how to save the attachments for emails received today and with certain subjects only?
