Copy email attachment XLSX file to SharePoint breaks the content

Hello everyone,

with the following flow I attempted to unload email attachments from Outlook to SharePoint:

When I execute it (both test and actual email worked as intended), I see the files coming in SharePoint. However, when I then download an excel file (.XLSX) created this way in SharePoint, I end up with the error message below:

I had to blackout the folders and filenames for privacy of my company, but other than dashes and whitespaces, there are no special characters contained in the names.

 

Am I doing something wrong here?

Hi @VariusTheSane ,

 

Maybe you could try to add a Get Attachment (V2) Action.

One addition: Manually downloading the files from the email and uploading them to SharePoint (manually again) does not result in breaking the excel files.
