Problem with links included in messages sent using "Mail" Connector

I frequently use the "Mail" connector's "Send an email notification (V3)" action to send emails in the flows I build.



Often, those messages include links (to items or files in SharePoint, to a Power Apps app, or just to a website). Since sometime over the weekend, clicking any of those links results in the user seeing this message:



I'm guessing that at some point recently, someone reported a message sent through this action as suspicious. This is one of the risks of using a service account that literally millions of other people have access to, I guess. In any case, is this a known issue, and is there anything being done about it? I use this action in cases where it's not appropriate to use the end-user's Outlook connection since it's the simplest method for sending an email without a specific user's connection.

Hi @ChadVKealey, have a look at ModifyNotification flow. 

That's interesting, but still appears to send from the same MS-managed service account. So, I don't think it would make a difference in terms of the issue I was seeing.


However, it looks like those links are opening normally again, so I guess the account/address rolled off of whatever blacklist it was on. I spent a good chunk of time in recent weeks replacing most instances of the Mail "Send an email notification (V3)" action with a SharePoint "Send an HTTP request" action to send the necessary messages. I really wish I had known about that option earlier.
