Setting 'to' email on automation

Hi guys,

I am trying to set up an automation based on a status change to send a notification to a specific email address of a non-monday user.

Status change to ‘xxx’ - send an email using ‘pulse box 1’ ‘pulse box 2’ to ‘’

The email address is not connected to any specific item or board as it is just an external contractor. Alternatively, I could have an automation of - when status changes to ‘xxx’ populate contractor email with ‘’ and send email to ‘contractor email’

I cannot find either of these methods in the automations or integrations so any help would be appreciated!

Same problem. I need “When Status changes, send email to ”, but email still be populated from my own email address
