Send Email without using connection

Hi PowerUsers, 

I am looking for a mechanism/way to send Email without using any connection (Outlook/Gmail/SMTP) in powerApps or flow. 

The idea is to send Email from PowerApps but do not want to show any connection at the start/permission screen when the App runs. 

Looking for a workaround this ASAP. 

Swift and helpful response is appreciated. 

Regards,
Ali Nawaz

Re: Send Email without using connection

If your users have Office 365 outlook accounts which they use to sign in to PowerApps, you can use the Office 365 outlook connector, which should automatically recognise their account from their login details.

 

From there, you need to use Office365.SendEmail

 

See https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/maker/canvas-apps/connections/connection-office365-outloo...

Maybe i have not made myself clear, I DO NOT want to use connectors. 

We are looking for a procedure where emails can be sent without connectors.

I don't think it is possible. Every solution needs some form of connector, whether it be flow or powerapps, as they do not have a built in email function. The Office365 connector should not require permission if the user has an account but that is the closest you can get.

Hi @Ali_Nawaz 

 

The other option is to use MS Flow and set "From (Send as)" with service account (no-reply@domain.com) can be set.

 

Thanks.
