Flows and Outlook rules

I'm not 100% sure on this, but it appears that an email in Outlook that has a .csv file attached to it, actually has to be in the "read" state for it to be noticed by Flow.  I'm having issues building rules in Outlook that are server based rules that would run even when my machine is off and that I set up a rule that does not turn the file into a "read" mode, then it is not processed though the Flow.  Is this accurate?  Thanks!!!

Is this how I mark it as Read before it hits the Outlook rule?

Does anyone have a screen shot of a successful Flow that includes putting an Outlook email as "read" using their Flow instead of Outlook rule?

hi @Anonymous  this is an example of how you can use rules email.

@ChristianAbata   it may be working - just want to go through one more round of drops to see if they all become "read" automatically - thanks!

@ChristianAbata  Not sure why when I make these choices, that I don't get a "read" or "not Read" drop down choice.  Ideas?
