"When a new email arrives" and Outbox

Hi

I am trying to move outbound emails into a specific folder by means of Flow instead of using Office 365 Outlook Rules.

I have implemented a very simple flow with the following trigger config. I have sent several emails matching the Subject pattern but PA Flow is not executed

Re: "When a new email arrives" and Outbox

@efialttes you will find that if you use the Sent items folder in your trigger instead of Outbox it will work. The outgoing email sits in the Outbox for such a small amount of time that the flow doesn't get a chance to trigger.
