       Did you try to use with port "587". Please note google will be block if you access from PowerApps. Better use with test a/c instead of live or private a/c.

I had tried many different port no. including 587. All did not work out.

Yes, you are right that google sent to me several times to block if it wasn't me.


I will give up using SMTP as it will affect my default email.


Will PG describes the pros and cons of using different email setting, including the potential impact such as SMTP?

Luckily I can handle unforseen situation but it was lucky! Others may be affected.


Please make a note in RED if having impact in the Learn Tutorial, Please. TQ




      I got different error when i tested with gmail. Look like current smtp does not match gmail server security control. Event i disabled 2-step verification.


I used hotmail smtp, email is sent but PowerApps show the error.


SMTP.SendEmail({From:"", To:"", Subject:"Power Apps", Body:"PowerApps Issuing"})




Banned error from hotmail if we use smtp setup user name and "From:" name is different.



Looking answer from PowerApps Team.



Hi hpkeong,

If you want to send email in PowerApps, you could create the SMTP connection in the connection section. For more detailed information, you could refer to the articles below.


Google Apps SMTP settings to send mail from a printer, scanner, or app.
