Hi @vic 

Try this…

Trigger: Gmail - New Email Matching Search

Search String: in:sent


By default this search will trigger on emails in all folders, including Sent emails, which most people don't want. To limit results, like to your inbox, include in:inbox.

This works the same as the search bar you see in Gmail. For example: from:amy OR from:david or in:inbox subject:dinner label:my-family. Learn more.


I have multiple files on my email but the Zap is giving me a Zip file combining all the files.

If you're using one of the new email-type Gmail triggers and find that all of the attachments on those e-mails are being zipped use the Gmail "New Attachment" trigger instead. This trigger runs once for every attachment on an email.
