Creating SharePoint list item from Outlook Shared email

I currently have a flow that takes information from a shared email inbox and creates a SharePoint list item. The only issue is that it seems that any images within the email are not being pulled into the Rich multi-line text field in the SharePoint item.


Is this not supported by MS Flow?


Examples Below:

In Email - Did not bring in the image belowFrom Email.PNG

Re: Creating SharePoint list item from Outlook Shared email


Hi @SPM ,


Here I think the file cannot be displayed because the path to the file is missing.

The file does exist in the email body, so it can be displayed normally. But when the email body message is stored in the SharePoint list item, the path of the file is missing, and the path pointed to by src has no way to find the corresponding file.

Please refer to the similar blog below:

As an alternative, I suggest you consider storing the image in the body message in the item attachment.
