FIXED – Nintex Workflow “The specified string not in the form required for an e-mail address”

Recently I came across this error, could not find a resolution on discussion boards, and wanted to share.

When using multiple Workflow Variables (TO, CC, CC2, CC3) with Send Mail action, you should NOT have any semi colon at the start or end of each string variable.

Feel free to reference multiple Workflow Variables when composing Send Mail action, but be sure to truncate recipient values neatly with semi-colons ONLY between values, and never at the prefix or suffix.

Cheers!

Announcement

Microsoft Forms is a part of Office 365 that allows your users to quickly and easily create custom quizzes, surveys, questionnaires, registrations and more. When you create a quiz or form, you can invite others to respond to it using any web browser, even on mobile devices. As results are submitted, you can use built-in analytics to evaluate responses. Form data, such as quiz results, can be easily exported to Excel for additional analysis or grading.

https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Set-up-Microsoft-Forms-cc52287a-4550-464d-9a1b-457bf9df2240?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US
What is the limit on the number of responses for Microsoft Forms?
You can receive up to 5,000 responses. If you require more, we recommend exporting existing responses to an Excel workbook, and then clearing these from your survey or quiz. This will enable you to collect more responses once cleared.

Will Microsoft Forms replace Microsoft InfoPath?
No. Microsoft InfoPath was a solution to create customizable forms that can enable automated workflows, whereas Microsoft Forms is a basic, lightweight app for quickly collecting information via surveys and quizzes.
Microsoft InfoPath is being replaced by SharePoint Lists, Flow, and PowerApps – modern solutions for digitizing traditional company forms, automating workflows, and transforming business processes. Learn more.
