Getting extra dummy image when I try to add image in body using email function

The aim is to fetch an image from an email and add it into the body of the email which will be drafted using flow.


My Flow is as below.








Email is as below


I am not sure why the dummy image comes there 


I can see the below while drilling the HTML content of the email.

img src="b5d834fdb5b04c15897552c23da44317"><img src="Dashboard.png">

I am not sure why two image source is there in the mail.


Please suggest.

Re: Getting extra dummy image when I try to add image in body using email function


Hi @xdennismike ,


I tested it on my side. If it is in outlook web, the picture can be sent as an attachment and displayed in the email body.

But in Outlook desktop client, the picture is also displayed as a dummy image.

I notice that there is a src in your email body that doesn't seem to be the name of the file? Is this the cause of this problem?

Please make sure that the src you configure in the body is the same as the name of the inserted attachment.


It seems that you are referring to the following article to configure Flow, but it seems that the method mentioned here is no longer applicable. The result of my test here is that this method is only valid in outlook online.
