Send email from the user that updated/created the item

I want to send an e-mail when an item is updated or created on a  Sharepoint list.
I've created a flow that is triggered when that happens.
However, the e-mail is sent by me and I want it to be sent by the person who updated/created the item. 
I found this exemple, but, in my flow does not appear "User email", just "Editor.Email". 
I tried to use the "Editor.Email" (triggerBody()?['Editor']?['Email']) but the flow fails because :
"You are not authorized to send email on behalf of the specified sending account."

Also, I have a expression in powerapps that sends the same email from the user and it works.

Unless the Flow is connected to a Power App, you will not be able to send the email as the person who created or updated the item unless all of those users grant you "Send as" permission which is likely not practical.  

Two alternatives to having the email sent as you are to use the "Send an email notification" action - the email with show as being from "Power Apps or Flow".  Another option is to have the email sent from a shared mailbox - this assumes that you have permissions to do so.
