Emailing using Exchange Web Service (EWS)

Hello Alteryx Team

 

I would be great if you could enhance the emailing function to Include sending emails using the Microsoft Exchange Web Service (EWS). And not just SMTP as there are companies that do not Allow sending emails using SMTP but EWS is allowed.

 

Regards

Markus

Hi Alteryx team, 

The issue we are experiencing with the email tool using SMTP is that the FROM email address can be anything (e.g. CEO of the company or anyone else), which could lead to people misusing it. Currently, there is no way to restrict what can be specified in the FROM field. Upon conversation with our IT department, the only two options are to use Exchange Web Services or Exchange rest api. Looks like Alteryx is not capable of using Exchange Web Services, and I have not found much information about using Alteryx with Exchange REST API.
