This is post #5 of our Build Flows Faster series covering our new Utility actions for Power Automate. Over the coming weeks, we will publish many more posts and accompanying videos, but today’s blog is about how to validate an email address in Power Automate.
Our utility actions are targeted at helping you build flows more quickly with less complexity, and they brilliantly only use 0.05 actions from your Encodian Flowr and Vertr subscription allowance. For example, under a standard plan that permits 500 actions per month (uses), you could use the utility actions 10,000 times!
Introducing the ‘Validate Email Address‘ Utility Action
The ‘Validate Email Address‘ utility action enables you to authenticate whether the syntax of the email address provided is valid.

Instructions: Validate an Email Address in Power Automate
Authenticating an email address in Power Automate is super simple. Consider the following scenario: I would like to authenticate whether the email address provided as the submitter of a Microsoft Form is valid before sending a ‘thank you’ email to the submitter.
1. Add the Encodian ‘Utility – Validate Email Address‘ action to the flow
1.a. Email Address: Select the Power Automate dynamic property containing the email address
2. Add a ‘Condition‘ action to the flow
2.a. Value: Select the ‘Result‘ property provided by the Encodian ‘Utility – Validate Email Address‘ action
2.b. Condition: Select the ‘equal to‘ option
2.c. Value: Enter ‘true‘
3. Configure your flow to perform the required steps depending on whether the email is valid (true) or invalid (false).
