Good Day Team,
Could someone give me a hand on helping me to find a way to validate if an email address exist and if it is valid? I have been looking for some solutions but I faild. Any suggestion will be great.
I am not aware of a way to test an email address to see if it exists but you can validate the email address is in the correct format.
This will return true if the EmailAddressFieldName is in the correct format.
IsMatch( [EmailAddressFieldName], Email )
Thanks for your solutions, I am trying to get this action done but I dont have experience, this is my first approach and what i need is, if the email is correct then go to the next stage but if email is incorrect i want send an email notification advising that email is incorrec. I have tried with "compose" and condition but I dont know where put or define the string "IsMatch( [EmailAddressFieldName], Email )" Will be great if you can give me a hand.. Thanks
You can use the IsMatch function on the OnSelect property of "Submit" or similar button that you might be using in the form.
As @Jeff_Thorpe said, it would only chekc if the email is in the correct format, it won't check if the e-mail itself exists or not. For example, if the user enters firstname.lastname@example.org , the IsMatch function will return true as the e-mail format is correct. However, if won't check if the e-mail exists or not.
Thanks @ThatAPIGuy for helping me, I was able to do this validation in my Power App form, however the form that is picking the info in this case is a Microsoft Form, once the Microsoft form is submitted the flow start, so what i need is inside the flow create a rule to validate the email or is there a possibility to validate in the Microsoft Form. I know that I am being anoyed probably I am going in the opossite direction.
