Sending email from Power Automate Flow

Jump to Best Answer
  • 1.  Sending email from Power Automate Flow

    Posted Dec 23, 2019 10:38 AM
    Is it possible to change the default sender of scheduled emails from Flow?  When the email is received the sender is:  "Microsoft PowerApps and Flow".  Is there a way to change this default?
    Also.. the link that I put into the Flow comes out as something different in the email.
    I put "https://teams.microsoft.com/l/channel/...." in Flow.  When the email is received the link says "https://u3088939.ct.sendgrid.net/wf/click?...."
    Any idea why this changes?
    Thanks....

    Hi Lisa,
    It sounds like the emails are been sent with the Send An Email notification action. I believe this uses SendGrid and will come from the email address microsoft@powerapps.com, this may also explain the links changing
    More details about this action can be found here https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/connectors/sendmail/#sendemailv3

    This action doesn't have the option to send as another address, however you may be able to use the Send an Email from OUtlook action. This provides the ability to change the from address as long as your account can send on behalf of that address. For flows like this I setup a connector to a different mailbox on 365


    Hopefully this helps

    If the email in flow is started by PowerApps   you can use the email of teh logged in user to the app or your own.  If the email is from a flow built by you and triggered internally like by list modification then you can use a shared mailbox you are a member of.

    Flow only recognises those approaches. as valid  You cannot use a shared box from a flow triggered by PowerApps unless the logged in user is a member of that mail box

    Thank you Gareth Hunt!  This solution worked perfectly.  I was to select my own FROM address and include a link in the body that pointed to the correct Teams site.
