Hi @VishalSharma 


You can send an email using a shared mail box (if it is just an alias then I am afraid it is currently not supported.) To send email form shared mail box you can select the appropriate action in the outlook office 365 connector and ensure that you have sufficient access on that shared mailbox. 


Hope this Helps!

@VishalSharma ,


I was able to do this by creating an Azure function combined with using SendGrid.  - here's an article which discusses it.


Additionally, i'm able to gain valuable metrics on who's opening, reading emails etc.  Further, you can send multiple attachments and re-use this function accross your organization. 


Hope this helps!
