Microsoft Flow Approval process mails coming from


I am trying to create approval flow for Sharepoint online list using MS flow.

I am using "start an approval process" option to approve/ reject the request. The issue is with "From" adress in approval emails.

I am receiving approval emails from My question is that if it is possible to change from address of approval email to account from which flow is running instead of Microsoft mail in FROM field.

Any help will be appreciable.

Hi Rakhijain,


I’m afraid that it might be default that an approval email will be sent from the account when using the action “Start an approval”.


Currently it is not possible to change the From email address to account from which flow is running, please consider to create a request at Flow ideas Forum, I will help report and collect it from my side.

Best regards,

Most users will ignore this email because they are not familiar who is "Microsoft Flow".
