Create your playbook and set the Outlook trigger as "Email received"

To setup this playbook, click "Add trigger" and then select "Email received" under Outlook. Then, select also trigger for incoming replies. This will allow your playbook to automatically detect the newly received email in Outlook and initiate necessary actions.

If this is your first time using a Outlook integration in Relay.app, a prompt will guide you through the connection process.
