The response is not in JSON format



I have a flow which main purpose is to move emails from different folders of Shared Mailbox to one. I am doing this activity through "Move email (V2)" which is taking its "Message id" from excel. 

In some cases the flow is working fine, in other occassions it shows error "The response is not in JSON format". When I was comparing succesful transaction and failed one I noticed that in the failed one in "Message id" I have "/" in the end.

Any suggestions?

Hi @dvoinikat,


Could you please confirm if the message ID of the Email valid?

My messages ID all end with "AAAA==", and there is no character "/":

I assume those are valid since I have them through Excel Power Query which was connected to Exchange in order to get all emails of the shared mailbox. It will surprise me, if in the same excel spreadsheet some IDs are valid, and some others are not. 
In the example of yours - I need to move 58 k emails and when I observe large sample of data, I identify IDs with "/", others with "+", and still others with no delimiter. 

Does this answer your question?
