Saving embedded photos in email to folder in OneDrive



I receive emails with photos embedded in the body of the email, and often times it is a lot of photos. This occurs primarily because when you use iOS to attach photos to emails they show up in the body and that is how our users send me photos.


I created a flow to save these embedded photos to a folder within OneDrive. The issue is that when the photos save, all their names (since there is no given attachment name), just say "Image". So what ends up happening is that a new file with the same name "Image" replaces the current one already saved in the folder. Is there a way around this? When I use Attachment ID instead of Attachment name, it gives me a random ID but the file then becomes just a "file" and no longer a jpeg which then has issues opening up.






Here is what happens when I use Attachment ID instead of Attachment Name:
