Send Bulk Email with no reply allowed

Hi,

I need to send update email to hundreds of people a day. Is there a way of preventing the email recipient from being able to reply? I need a one way employee comms approach. 

 

Also if I use a shared email account is there a way to remove on behalf of?

 

Much appreciated

Hi @QRob ,

 

You can use the SharePoint API to send via your no-reply@sharepointonline.com email here.  Not sure if the same works with the outlook send email action From (send as) field.

 

You can also use the Mail connector here which will send from microsoft@powerapps.com but there are volume limits.

You can use the approach by @eric-cheng 

 

The domain is owned by Microsoft, so it is safe:

 In case an internal policy or company policy does not allow you to trust the above, or there is concern of the unlikely event the above changes, you may need to have an alternate custom top level domain name of your own for only this purpose, and set it up so it will just always bounce (e.g. configure it as separate Office 365 domain but don't have any users on it at all so it always bounces with a no user found error, or something like that). If you do this custom domain, you also may not have to use the custom HTTP request and just use a native out of the box Send an Email with Outlook request.

 

If it doesn't matter for you, then you can just use the solution by @eric-cheng with no-reply@sharepointonline.com

 

Alternatively, if you are OK with using same custom domain where real e-mails already come out from but just no-reply as the prefix, like no-reply@example.com (where example.com is your real domain), you can have an Exchange rule set up - a routing rule where mail received on no-reply will be Rejected (which will send a non-delivery email too automatically that the e-mail was rejected, and it will not arrive on your inbox). You can do similar approach in the separate domain as well if you prefer the separate domain e.g. example.org instead of example.com. This way you can use a custom domain if you want, have full control over it, and also avoid the use of the custom HTTP request as well and use out of the box Send an Email from Outlook Action instead, and still have a no-reply address.
