Hi @Student2 , 

 

You cannot use a distribution list as a recipient in the 'Send an email (v2)' action. However, there is a simple workaround. Just initialize a string variable with the DL email address and use the variable value in the 'To' field of the 'Send an email (v2)' action.   

 

Hope this helps!

Hi @Student2 , have you confirmed with users who were part of the  Distribution List? I just tested again and got similar output in the flow, but the users of the DL did get the email. I didn't get the email myself although my email is included in the DL. That is just expected behavior when you mail to a DL. If you are unable to send emails to the DL, can you please confirm that the DL is not restricted to specific senders?

Hi @bibhupanigrahi 

 

Thank you very much for your response.

I have tried as per your proposal but with no success: Flow succeeded but no email was sent out. Please see flow below and the output returned from Email action.

Have checked with the users and they actually got the email 😃 was included in the list myself and since I didn't receive anything I thought it didnt work. Thank you very much for all the kind support.
