Issue running Outlook using Power Automate Desktop

Hi, I'm trying to create a flow on Power Automate Desktop (PAD) that involves opening the Outlook app, reading certain emails and then sending an email. However, every time I run this flow, I run into the following error:


A program is trying to send an email message on your behalf. If this is unexpected, click Deny and verify your antivirus software is up-to-date.

For more information about email safety and how you might be able to avoid getting this warning, click Help.


On clicking "Help", I am sent to the following link:


Is there any way to give access to PAD such that flows can run without having this pop-up show?

Support team need to provide a solution for overcoming solution to connect -IMAP server
