Send Email from Canvas App on behalf of Service account email



Not sure if this is something possible, I have a scenario were an email should be sent to user from specific email account on button click, I've added something like below on button click which works fine when I set 'From' as my email and when I click to send that email but when I change the 'From' to service account email, I am getting below error.

I understand sender needs permissions to that email account but since we have above 300 users for App, we cannot give that email permission to all the users on O365 separately, isn't that permissions provided when I share the App? and is there any better approach for my case ?   




Thank you

Hi @godala_vamshi ,

One solution would be to write a Flow with your Service Account triggered by "when an item is created" and then send all the parameters to the target list as a new record. The email will then come from your Service Account.


Please click Accept as solution if my post helped you solve your issue. This will help others find it more readily. It also closes the item. If the content was useful in other ways, please consider giving it Thumbs Up.



@WarrenBelz Thank you for suggestion. I thought of creating a Flow but I don't want to add another Flow just for sending an email.
