Do you want to build a flow that is triggered only when the particular mail arrives at the mailbox, and your condition wish list is long?

You can solve it using trigger conditions that are not well documented. I hope this article will fill this gap.

Some flows might run more often than you expect. For example, you create a flow that sends you a push notification whenever your manager sends you an email (by the way this is an example from Microsoft Learn). That flow must run every time you get an email from anyone because the flow must check whether the email came from your manager. This action counts as a run. And it doesn't need to be this way.
