Sending Email from Admin on behalf of sender in Business Central using MS Flows

Introduction:

In Business Central, to send an Email the sender Email is always the user in SMTP Setup. But, what happens when you are sending email from <admin@yourorganization.com> but should be going department wise ie. <sales@yourorganization.com> and <marketing@yourorganization.com>. Thus in this blog I’ll be showing how to send email from the department email using the admin email.

Pre-requisite:

1. VS Code.
2. Office 365.
3. Microsoft Dynamics Business Central.
4. MS Flows.

Demonstration:

1. Setting Up MS Flows:

  • Creating the HTTP request:
  • Using Sample Payload as :
    [{
    "sender":"Test Sender",
    "recepient":"Test recepient",
    "subject":"Test Subject",
    "body":"Test body"
    }]
    
  • Add the  Send an Email action:

  • Save the MS Flow and copy the trigger URL in  Postman and passing JSON, check if you the email.
  • Check mail box for delivery of Email

2. Enable email delegation in Office 365.

In portal.office.com, navigate to Admin > Admin Center > Exchange > Mail boxes > <–Admin Email–> > Delegate

Add you department email here. In this cas Cloudfronts@xyz.com is admin email and olisterr@xyz.com is department email.

3. Call the MS Flows from Business Central.

Code:

4. Output

Conclusion:

Thus in this way we can use MS Flows Webhooks to actually trigger an email passing the data through JSON as an POST http request.
