Action 'Get_mail_tips_for_a_mailbox_(V2)' failed already when adding my own email address

I used 'Get_mail_tips_for_a_mailbox_(V2)' in a very simple FLOW (after investigating several how-todos) however this operation already returns following error (I even tried it with my own email address) - just added (using my real emailaddress) - I am not even getting to the next step in order to check whether automaticreplies null/blank:

Http request failed: the content was not a valid JSON. Error while parsing JSON: 'Unexpected character encountered while parsing value: R. Path '', line 0, position 0.'


Raw input looks like:

    "host": {
    "parameters": {
        "body/EmailAddresses": [
            ""                            --> replacing my personal email address for this audience


Please advice

@Alex-AT works fine for me, I tried this for 3 different email IDs


Output :

    "emailAddress": {
    "automaticReplies": {

@Alex-AT this is strange, so even if you pass a hardcoded value even then you get error ? did you try hardcoding a value already ?

@Alex-AT can you try something like this, just trial and error 



Yes, tried hard coded email too - same error

really appreciate your support here - I tried but failed again:





I got it to run: reason was obviously that the specific environment I used didn't allow this connector

I tried it in another environment and there it worked.  Thanks again for all efforts to support me. I hope this thread will help others at some point!
