How to stop "flagging an email trigger" from running multiple times



I have a very simple flow.


Trigger: When an email is flagged

(passing Message ID)

Action: Forward and email


I have existing flagged emails in my inbox prior to enabling the flow. After enabling the flow and triggering when I flag an email, the flow runs multiple times and keeps forwarding the email, when it should only run once and forward the email once.


How can I fix it so that it only runs once?

Re: How to stop "flagging an email trigger" from running multiple times

Hi @Ken5 ,


The reason that Flow is constantly being triggered and forwarding mail is that you may have filled your email address in To field.

This is the result of the overlap between the account used by the trigger and the account in the To field.


Please try adding a condition to restrict mail forwarding.

I'm forwarding flagged emails in my email account to


Have other ideas I can try?
