Hi @naortalmor1 :wave:

I am not quite clear on the use case here. Your app can perform actions on behalf of the user. Please see our Web application flow information.

https://docs.github.com/en/developers/apps/building-github-apps/identifying-and-authorizing-users-for-github-apps

Private Email only provides IMAP/POP3 for inbound and SMTP for outbound.
Due to these protocols, access from within an application may have restrictions.

A REST API would be ideal as it is an easier method of communication to work with since it generally operates over HTTP/S requests (i.e. ports 80, 443). Services such as MailChimp and SendGrid have these APIs to help applications and programs send emails.
