Hi @veeru_d,

I think there are a few options:

  1. First thought was using Office 365 SDK to build a Outlook add-in: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/office/dev/add-ins/quickstarts/outlook-quickstart?tabs=yeomangenera... However you are not using the Power Platform for this.
  2. You can probably achieve this with Power Automate. When a new email arrives trigger with the Exchange Connector V3, check the body of the email, if it contains the download link, then perform a HTTP action to the download link to get the file. After that, you can use the SharePoint connector to upload the file to SharePoint. This option assumes though there's some kind of convention for the download link, otherwise, it would get more complex to determine if the link is a download file versus standard hyperlink.

Hi @veeru_d 

 

Could you please share more details about your requirement?

Does the download link mean attachments?  If not, could you please share some examples.
