Hi @mmvignesh ,

 

I have made a test on my side and you could send email to Distribution group, and you just need to enter the Distribution group email address in the send an emil action, it is the same as send an email to a person.

The flow should as screenshot below:

Hi @mmvignesh ,

 

You need to be a member of that group. Also you need to use flow action List group members to get all the group members by Apply to each loop for sending the email notification.

I had the same issue and found a workaround:

Just put the address of the distribution group into a string variable and use this variable in the send mail action.sendMailToDistributionGroup.png

This worked perfectly for me. I found that this would not let me include my E-mail in the TO: field along with the DL variable string. No worries. In this case I am a member of the DL so I was able to receive the Email sent to the DL.
