Difference between "Send an email notification (V3)" and "Send an email (V2)"

Hi,

MailConnector.png

I am researching the differences between the 

"Send an email notification (V3)" Action which comes with the Mail Connection

and the

"Send an email (V2)" Action which comes with the Office 365 Outlook Connection.

 

I am fully aware that you need to have a license and online mailbox in order to use the Office 365 Outlook connection. That being said, If a user has the necessary elements to use either action, why might you choose one over the other?

 

Thank you for your assistance

Matt

The Send an email notification (v3) will send the email from Microsoft PowerApps and Flow. It can only send 100 emails every 24 hours.

The Send an email (v2) will send the email from you as the creator of the flow. It can send 900 emails every 60 seconds.

@schuess3 

The primary reason that I might choose to use the Send an Email notification action is that it shows as being from (the sender) "Microsoft Power Apps and Flow".  The Send an Email action shows as being from the individual whose credentials were used on the send an email connector - usually the Flow author.

Hi @schuess3,

 

"Send an email notification (V3)" could add only one attachment into the email, but "Send an email (V2)" could add multiple attachments:
