Hi @leemich8815, welcome to the Community!


If you’d like the ‘readable’ version of the email, select the ‘Body Plain’ field from the list of data that you get from the email trigger. 


I send emails to Slack and I also like to include the Message Url field so I can easily go to the email if I want to reply to it 🙂


​I hope that's clear, please let us know if you have any questions!
