1st use of Flow

So I looked at the idea as one would with Zapeir. Zapier is pretty simple and I took this in when trying Flow. The use case I looked to implement is as follows:


UseCase: Mail comes into O365 with attachment & Attachment should land in either a Sharepoint of Azure Blob just as it is and not overwrite another in the location.


Flow: 1. On new mail (assuming that Flow takes the rule in O635) in a folder named whatever where the the new mail comes into

          2. Create fileScope using attachment & send to sharepoint site


Quite simple but when I chose the mail folder assuming that FLOW runs on top of Outlook than I quickly had all mails in the first one above and not in sharepoint. So the interfaceis not intuitive for those not so versedin this. Besides this the cost factor is not that promising considering that zapeier and others do same with ease of use.
