cateategorisation of emails in Outlook as trigger event in Flow

Hello everybody, I have noticed that in Outlook you can categorise the emails. I was wondering if it was possible to trigger a flow in case of a certain categorisation in Outlook. A practical example would be the following: we have some fixed tax deadlines. We send normally an email to the clients to ask if they have something to declare. In case of positive reply, the email could be categorised by my employees (e.g. "blue" or whatever). This in my mind would trigger a "add task" in Planner, thus avoiding the need to fill a list manually and diminishing the risk of missing somebody. However, I could not find any "list categories" in Flow related to Outlook. Do you know if something like this is supported? Thank you and best regards, Vittorio
