Save images embedded in email to Onedrive for Business

I receive a fortnightly update email that contains images within the body of the email. I would like to extract all of the images separately into a folder instead of manually having to right click, save image as..... Is this possible?

Hi @Anonymous,

 

I have tested on my side, you could use the following methods to achieve your needs.

Get attachment action not only gets the attachments in the email, it also gets the image contained in the body.

Please take a try.

Hi

 

this does not seem to work for embedded images. Which seems to be the prevailing way of my users to send images after making a picture on their phone.

 

Any suggestions how to detect and capture those and store in onedrive?

 

Thank you and regards,

 

Tom

Hi

I stand corrected. The explanation does work. I made a mistake "Has attachments" should be "No", but "Include Attachments" should be "Yes".

Hello @Tommmertom - 

 

I tried this option, but it doesn't work for me. Can you please help if I overlooked anything.

Dear all,

I find a way of doing it with 2 Power automate Flow :

1rst Flow : forward the email, and delete_it -> it help to have the Embedded picture in attachment (in my case jpg attachment).

This almost works for me but not quite. 
I have a shared mailbox to which I received emails containing any manner of embedded or attached images/pdf etc. 

I need the attachments and embedded images to be saved to a location on sharepoint. 
I then need the email moving to another folder. 
Finally I need an email sent to the original sender to confirm we received their attachments. 

I have so far got this working perfectly using a different example to that above except it doesn’t save the embedded photos. I have tried to follow your method and whilst it does save all the images including attachments and embedded ones, I end up sometimes with multiple emails in the inbox which don’t get deleted, and multiple copies of the attachments and images saved in sharepoint. 
There must be a way of getting this to work so it just saves the attachments once, and I don’t end up with multiple emails sat in the inbox. 
Any help appreciated!

Please share image of your power automate flow to help you.

1st flow :

You should create a condition as subject filter (here does not contain the word RPA)

You should rename the subject of your send email begining with RPA.

You should subject filter your email with email who start with RPA

Many thanks for your help. I will give that a go. 

Running the flows below, (I am not sure how to replicate your condition which only shows one option?),

the result is:

1. the original email enters the inbox. 

2. It is then deleted.

3. The email is replaced with a new email containing 'RPA' in the subject line.

4. No files are saved to Sharepoint.

5. The 2nd email (and multiple copies of if there are more than one embedded item) remains in the inbox.

6. No emails go to the Processed folder.

 

Both flows succeed if there are only embedded pictures in the email, otherwise if there are attachments step 1 fails.

 

I assume my condition is wrong for a start!

Hello, could you maybe explain how  forward the email, and delete_it helps to extract the embedded picture ?

i am struggeling with following:

I have a flow that, as soon as an email arrives in Outlook, saves the attachments in share point and then stores the email and attachments in planner (Teams). This works quite well so far, but not if an image is embedded in the email body. I would like embedded images in the email to be converted as an attachment and then attached as an attachment

I have the same issue, 

Cant re-create the email with the embedded images, following
