    It seems that there is something wrong in Outgoing email configuration in your environment. Can you validate it by creating same workflow in any list where you can send any email to any person and check whether email is being sent or not Aug 18, 2022 at 7:31

$webApp = Get-SPWebApplication $webApplicationURL

if($webApp -ne $null)
{
Write-Host “Web Application : ” + $webApp.Name

foreach($siteColl in $webApp.Sites)
{
if($siteColl -ne $null)
{
Write-Host “Site Collection : ” + $siteColl.Url
foreach($subWeb in $siteColl.AllWebs)
{
if($subWeb -ne $null)
{
#Print each Subsite
#Write-Host $subWeb.Url
Write-Host “Site: ” + $subWeb

$site=Get-SPWeb $subWeb.Url
# $web=$site.OpenWeb()
$lists=$site.Lists
if($lists -ne $null)
