Hi @Narula_Srinivas,


Could you please share a screenshot of your flow's configuration?


I suppose that this issue is related to the "Send an email" action of Outlook connector, is it true? The error message told that your "Send an email" action within your flow has reached a time out error.


I have made a test on my side and don't have the issue that you mentioned. My flow's configuration as below:3.JPG

The flow works successfully as below:4.JPG


Please recreate the action on your side and check if the issue is solved. If the issue still exists, please feel free to contact me here.


Best regards,

Yes, we are using OOB outlook connector to send mails. I was getting Invalid connection when connecting with our accounts.


This issue happend for almost 12 hrs 24/Jan/18 6PM BST - 25/Jan/18 6AM BST. Even I tried to create a sample with other tenant still the issue exists. Looks like this happend across tenants.


Please clarify below items:

  1. Is there any dashboard to check the service health like Office 365 dashboard
  2. Do you people publish the release patch information on product blog site or somewhere?

@v-xida-msft : can you please respond to above questions?
