Hi @krishnakumar_72,

Do you want to trigger the When a new email arrives when a new email is sent to a distribution list?

 

Actually, Power Automate does not support to send email to a DL currently.

You could consider converting the DL to a shared mailbox instead.

Hi there, 


A distribution list would go to many email addresses. Which of those email addresses are you monitoring? You'd need to connect to at least one. 

 

If you're using a Group, you'd want to instead use the trigger for Group emails - "when a new email arrives to a Group".

You will need to use one of the email accounts that is included in the distribution list. A distribution list is just a group of individual emails. If you select and connect to one of those emails, that will solve your issue.

Scenario:

Customer send email to "SupportGroup@XXX.com"
My id is part of the DL
