Send an email in Microsoft flow is missing the 'From' option

Since today, I noticed the From option (send on behalf) is missing in 'Send an email' .  We are using this frequently, since mails should not be sent from the Flow creator.

Also in Send an email V2 this is not available.

I hope this is not removed permanently, because then we will have major problems!

Re: Send an email in Microsoft flow is missing the 'From' option

@mpoppe I noticed this recently as well.  To get around it I had to add a connection for the mailbox I was sending from.  Then you can change the send e-mail step to use this connection by clicking the elipsis on the step name and then choosing the correct connection from under My Connections.

Re: Send an email in Microsoft flow is missing the 'From' option

Hi @mpoppe,

 

Unfortunately, the "Send as" field has been removed from Send email action, there is an IDEA about calling it back, you can head to vote it, hope it could help you:

Re: Send an email in Microsoft flow is missing the 'From' option

Thanks for this workaround. 

I found it also works with: Send an email from a shared mailbox (V2).  There you can fill in the from field.  Requirement is that you (connection used) have 'send on behalf of' rights on the senders mailaccount.
