Hi everyone, 

I’m a new Zapier user and trying to create a Zap where I get notified via gmail every time that someone new fills out my form (I created it using tally.so).

This is a pretty simple 2-step flow but I keep encountering this error message and I’m not sure why:

Failed to create a send email in Gmail

Header values can't contain newlines (got 'grace@Housing.info\n' for header 'To')


All I’m doing is inserting my email in the To line. Do I need to use a different value there?

 


Thanks in advance for your help! :)

Hi @speekie 

Good question.

Remove the line break after the email address.

Thanks for getting back to me Troy!

I tried doing that (see attached) and still get the same error :( 

Am I doing this correctly?

Try testing again.

If the error persists, please post updated screenshots with how your Zap steps are configured along with the encountered error.

I think it works now, thank you very much for your help!
