I'm getting same error randomly. It works in almost all the cases, but time to time it fails...


Were you able to fix it?

Are you passing an email address into the recipients field?


I just tested this with an email in a compose, feeding into the same action, and it worked. I don't say that to devalue your experiences, more to try to find out either what I'm doing right, here, or what is not setup quite correctly on your (various) end(s).


Ah! I think I know what the issue is here ... gimme a second. 😅


Essentially, you need to pick a SUBSET of the data from the value that you're presenting. You're presenting too complicated an item to the recipients field. You're giving it MORE than just an email.


EDIT - You need to choose the 'Responsible Person Email' from the dynamic data list, that's your goto here.


Sorry, ignore the above, I've read your post more carefully, you're already using that data.


Question, regarding the users in question:

  1. Are they already in the appropriate SharePoint/365 group that has access to the list/file?
  2. It might sound crazy, but do their accounts have an email address associated with them?
