Save email attachments from shared mailbox to SharePoint online (with different name)

Hello, 

 

I am having trouble saving pdf attachments from a shared email mailbox to sharepoint. 

 

I want to save them under the subjects name. 

 

It runs and creates a file under in the sharepoint folder but its not the attachment, its a 1 KB file that i am unable to open. 

 

Is it not possible to change the attcments name or am i doing something wrong here?

Re: Save email attachments from shared mailbox to SharePoint online (with different name)

Hi @BjarkiThor,

 

In general, if you want to save the files contained in the attachment to the SP Library, the configuration in File Name and File Content should be Attachments Name and Attachment Content, as below:

If you directly populate the Subject directly in the File Name, the file will be missing type; it is also inappropriate to fill the Current item in the File content, because the Current item does not only contain File content.

If you want to use Subject as the file name, you need to add ".pdf" as the file type.

However, if there are multiple pdf files in the attachment, the file name seems to be repeated, which may overwrite the previously created file.

It is recommended to add a variable to prevent the file name from being duplicated.

Please take a try.

Hi @BjarkiThor

The last time I did this I used:Capture-250.png

So I'd advise usinmg "Get Item" after your trigger.

Thank you, the .pdf did the trick and changed the file content from current item to Attachments content.
