From Field in Send an Email
It would be great to have a From field that supports dynamic references. Most business requirements want emails sent from a specific account, which is not supported in NW in O365!
To support this requirement we’ve just release the following features
- Specify a customizable sender display name for both email and task actions, we understand one of the main requests was to be able to supply a custom from email address however due to many of the limitations in the cloud we are currently unable to deliver this request and so hopefully being able to add a From display name will get you one step closer..
- Add a customizable Reply To email address for the email action so you can control the email address when people hit reply.
Hope you enjoy these features and be great to hear any feedback once you try them out.

The notification emails whether it is from the workflow or SharePoint is sent by the system. In our organization there is a general tendency to avoid emails from the system.
Currently I am developing a workflow application where the manager approves a form and an emails will be sent to his subordinates. This email however send by the system " email@example.com". I would like to request for such feature.
I can’t see "From" in Sent email action in office 365, But at the same time I can see this feature is available in nintex for SharePoint 2013 Send notification
it would also be great to be able to specify a From address not only on per step basis, but also on per workflow.
Any updates on this ?

I definitely recommend adding this capability - it's a very common request our clients have. Obviously the Lazy Approval dependency would have to be addressed though.

Is there a status on this?
In our organization the sharepoint notifications sometimes end up in the quartaine or Spam box. If an organizational e-mail address could be used it will be more clear from whom this mail might come.
I really like the option to send an email externally, when this is enabled the email goes thru other servers in North America.
That's probably why the from address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
It would be great if there is a possibility to change that or if that is not possible to at least specify the displayname of the email adress
As this functionality is key to our Corporate News Room in O365, I need this now.
This would be very useful. Especially now that the from email address has recently changed to 'email@example.com'.

Is there any update for this ?
I would like to change the From address when sending an email. For the moment the From is equal to "My Site name" and the email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
We would like to send a more personal email to external person by choosing our "From" as we can do it onPrems.
Thanks a lot!

This function is desperately needed by my organization. Is there a time frame for this?
