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.

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:

I can see from Microsoft's documentation:

 

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

 

Can anyone tell me in what exact context? Is this is per flow, per user or per tenant?

 

Thanks,
Paul

If you want to dynamically change the connection you won't be able to do that.

Is it any work around when user receive email From:- xyz@gg.com To: User Email ID instead of xyz can we hide this email id from user and put another email id? like: noreplypower@onmicrosoft.com OR Microsoft Power Apps and Power Automate microsoft@powerapps.com like that?

If you can deal with the limitations of Send an email notification, then that is your answer. 

Your option to create a shared mailbox is likely your best choice.  You can name the shared mailbox almost anything you want.

@ScottShearer  - This is actually frustrating. Microsoft is actually recommending Power Automate as Successor to SharePoint Designer. Such basic things are missing in the products. Shared Mailbox may not be a good choice from security standpoint within certain organizations and policies might restrict them. Really surprised which such a low email threshold on Send email notification v3.  Product team should think from business standpoint. Have you come across any other solution?

Look at the "in response to" in my post. 🙂 

I was looking for the information that says that "Send an email notification (V3)" has only 100 calls per day.

But I found it: Mail - Connectors | Microsoft Docs

 

What a terrible design of a connector! I am now working with my first two real Power Automate projects. And there are SO MANY limitations. And for the most basic of functionality. I never thought that sending an email from a no reply address should prove to be a problem... 

 

Im working with moving deviation systems from SP on prem to SP online, and creating a brand new quality and deviation system. So many emails to set up so much problems with Power Automate :\.

 

I never thought I would miss SharePoint designer workflows SO MUCH!
