Hi @RakeeS , you can try out the approach below:

1. Convert HTML to plain text to remove all html tags.

2. The tricky part is the compose 4 - it's not empty, it's actually a new line (press Enter). We need to use this trick to capture new line character later on in our expressions. '\n' does not work in flow expressions.

3. Expression in Initialize variable step:

add(indexOf(outputs('Compose_2'),outputs('Compose_4')), 1)

-> This is to find the index of the first new line (end of the first line) and add 1 to have the index of the start of the second line.

4. Expression in Compose 3: 

substring(outputs('Compose_2'),variables('startOfSecondLine'))

-> Get the rest of the body starting from the start of second line.

initialize variable : 

add(indexOf(outputs('Compose2'),outputs('Compose')), 1)

 

Compose2

substring(outputs('Compose2'),variables('remove'))

 

 

output:

its working partially.  but getting body in two times.

Hi, @ashyriverflow , getting duplicate message at  Html to text field onwards.

RakeeS_0-1654676124566.png

Inputs

<p><html lang="en"><head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8"><meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, user-scalable=no, initial-scale=1.0, maximum-scale=1.0, minimum-scale=1.0"><meta content="ie=edge"></head><body><p><strong><span style="font-weight:bold">[EXTERNAL]</span> </strong>This message comes from an external organization.</p><div><span class="preheader" style="color:transparent; display:none; height:0; max-height:0; max-width:0; opacity:0; overflow:hidden; visibility:hidden; width:0">test message</span> <div class="container">test message<br></div></div></body></html></p>


Outputs

[EXTERNAL] This message comes from an external organization.

test message
test message

 

hi @RakeeS , to me, the conversion seems to be correct. There are two "test message" in the body of the email so in the plain text output we see two "test message". How does the actual email body look like?

hi @ashyriverflow 

below is the email body.

Hi @RakeeS 

In case if you have plain text content with you can you try the below code

last(split(variables('mailBody'),'comes from an external organization.'))

So here we're splitting by exact text and taking the second part of it.

 

The outcomes

Hi @Shujaath_Khan 

where i need to change ? 

i can remove the first line, but body printing twice. 

hi @RakeeS ,

 

The code snippet you can use in compose action and the above code snippet only removes the first line only. If body is coming twice well that should be another case to look into.
