File System Flow to Save Down Email Attachments Works Sometimes

Hi there,

 

I've created a flow using File System that saves email attachments onto our server as we get a lot of invoices from vendors. What I've noticed is if a vendor sends 20 emails with attachments at a time, the flow will not save a couple of the attachments. 

 

Is there a way I can resolve this so that no attachments are missed? 

 

Thank you.

Hi @Lkrishna,

 

Try to add a "Delay" action after the trigger "When a new email arrives":

If this still wouldn't help, please tell users to avoid sending to many attachments at a time.

Adding the delay still doesn't seem to frix the issue. Recently I had 15 emails send at the same time and only 3 of them saved to the server. Also our vendors automatically send invoices/emails so I'm unable to get them to change their practices just for us.

 

Any suggestions?
