Sending email from app using a specific mailbox

Hello, 

is it possible allow the app to send an email but from a specified sender instead of the user that's using the app?

 

I made an app where it's possible to create questions and answer them. The creator of question is stored in the db but the app doesn't show it for privacy, so the question can appear anonymous. When an user log in and reply to that question, i would love the app to send an email to the person who created the question and notify that the question was answered. 

 

The problem is that when the user click the button reply, it sends an email that has the user replying as sender, so he will see in his outlook the receiver and there won't be privacy. 

 

Can I have the user clicking the button and the app send the email from a specific sender, such as a myappcustomdlemail@mail.com ?

You can use Power Automate and use your email as connection. Give send as access to your email only. And use that flow in powerapps. Now the context is not the app user but the flow owner. So it will be abstracted from the current user and you can implement your solution. 

 

Also Alternate solution if it fits:

Use the From Property in the connector. You'll need to give permission for that email.

if i understood correctly, this won't work in my case because every user of the app should have then permission to use that specific DL email...
