Trigger flow on new email

I have made an flow with a trigger on new email in a sub folder(import).


But when we move unread mail in outlook to the  import folder the Flow doesn' react when the mail is older then today.


So what is the definition of new email in microsoft flow?

Hi @Mscholt77,


Do you want to trigger your flow when an unread email is moved to another specific folder?

To test this issue, I have made a flow. It is triggered by When a new email arrives. When an email is moved to Import Folder, it will send a notification.

Per my certain test, I found that when I move an email which was sent Today, it will trigger the flow properly. However, if the email was sent yesterday or before, it won’t trigger the flow.

There are similar requests on Flow Ideas Forum about this issue, please vote and comment the idea at here:
