Azure Logic App - sending an email without user dependancy

Hello,

I would like to know how can I send an email from logic apps without using a personal account email. I know how to do it with a personal email or mailbox but how should we manage the password change policy in that case? I mean, assume that we have 100 Logic apps running with a personal email account and you should change the password once a quarter for all of them. Shall we change the passwords for all the Logic Apps? This is not very sustainable, isn't it? There is an alternative without doing a personal account or bypass the password change policy?

Thanks,
Ferran

    I am also stuck at the same point.

    • Using a personal account to create the API connection to send email is risky as anyone else can create a logic app and use that connection to send email from your account.
    • Your sent email list will keep on growing significantly. Microsoft needs to provide some better way ,otherwise there is no benefit of this connector at all.

    One option is using a service like SendGrid for which a connector already exists. But for the Outlook 365 Connector, once using Managed Identity is supported, this would be the way to go.

    Currently, one approach could be to share a single API Connection Resource between all logic apps, simplifying the update process. But do note that it is possible to hit throttle limits depending on the volume.
