Error! Filename not specified when forwarding emails from SharePoint



I created an automation where it sends an email on a specific time. The content of Send V2 is coded in HTML, where I created a Get File Content to grab the image (png) stored in Site Assets inside SharePoint. When the automation sends the email coded in HTML, the content displays correctly. However, when forwarding the email, I get an error, please see details.


This is the content and received from SharePoint.

from sharepointfrom sharepoint

When about to forward the email before sending, this is the error.

Is it possible to give me the details of the HTML I set in the action to send an email as a clue to the solution?


I used google translate.

Probably due to a limitation in Outlook on Mac, it seems that an error occurs during the transfer.
And when I click the forward button in his web version of Outlook, the image disappears from the email body.

I can successfully forward HTML emails from Power Autoamte with images attached with the same dataUri in Outlook on Windows.
So I think this type of email can only be forwarded to Outlook on Windows.


I used google translate.
