Not able to open email (.msg) file locally, created at sharepoint using Flow?

Hi All,

I used .msg as a file type while saving an Outlook 365 email to Sharepoint using flow.

I can preview it in SharePoint, but it is not opening locally."

So, I want to know that, how to open it locally?

Below is my flow :

save email flow.png

Awaiting response.

Thanks in advance!

Hi @vaibhavvijay9 

Try ".eml" instead of ".msg" in your "Create File" > "File Name"

This should work as it works for me.

Thanks, Alan

Hi, is there a way to save the email as if you had drag and dropped it into SharePoint the SharePoint folder yourself (with attachments and all)

See the solution above from vaibhavvijay9

When you create the file it will also contain any attachments.

 

Be sure to to use an .eml extension otherwise you can't open the file once downloaded.
