Send an e-mail in power apps

Is it possible to send an e-mail in power apps, from my private e-mail adress with my own domain?

You can use the FROM parameter in the SendEmailV2 to send the email from your own Office 365 mailbox.  Office 365 can be configured with your own domain for mail.  But you can't send email from an external mailbox it has to be an office 365 mailbox.

hi @Anonymous Interesting question. I don't have the answer but do not think that's the use case for power apps. Have a look at this it can inspire you.

Hi @Anonymous 

The typical way to send email from your own domain is to use the SMTP connector, rather than the Office 365 Outlook connector.

With the SMTP connector, you would specify your SMTP mail server, username, and password, in the same way that you would configure any other email client to send messages from your private email address.

The details for this connector are here:

If you want to configure Microsoft/Office 365 to send email for your domain, you need to set it up so that the manages email for your custom domain.

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/admin/setup/add-domain?view=o365-worldwide

 

The 'send as' solution is not designed to send email from a private email domain. The use case scenario for this is to enable, for example, a secretary to send email on behalf of a boss in an Outlook enabled organisation.

IMO, the only real way to do this is to use the SMTP connector.

@timl but I already have my own e-mail in outlook.

Here's a link to the documentation.

Office 365 Outlook - Connectors | Microsoft Docs

And here's a good walkthrough of the syntax for the command.

If you added your email account to Outlook like so, I do not believe that you can use the Office365 Outlook connector to send messages from the associated account. Perhaps the others here can verify that.

My inclination would be to use the SMTP connector.
