Triggers for email messages drag/dropped from individual Inbox to Shared Mailbox

Hello - I am trying to create a trigger where dragging/dropping an existing email from my individual Inbox to a specific folder in a Shared Mailbox will trigger a Planner Task to be created in a corresponding Bucket. 

 

I successfully created a Flow to create new tasks from new emails that I forward to the Shared Mailbox, but the Trigger does not recognize older emails dragged to the Shared Mailbox as a "new" email. 

 

Any ideas? If not this would be a very useful feature/function addition. I know it works for Sharepoint folders, so why not for mailboxes?

You can try forwarding the email to the shared mailbox, or replying all on the original email and adding the shared mailbox as a recipient. That should fire the trigger "When a new email arrives in a shared mailbox."

That works for all incoming emails to trigger new tasks in a single Planner bucket. I need to create tasks in multiple buckets, depending on topic, with a simple drag-drop. there are other ways to do this, e.g. I've alrady created a way to do this by dragging email messages to Sharepoint folders, which is less elegant than dragging/dropping inside Outlook. I also could ask my staff to forward emails and add a "trigger" word to the subject line, but I am afraid that mis-typed emails will trigger nothing at all then. 

 

In my opinion neither of these solutions are ideal. A new trigger option would be the most elegant in my view.
