Amazon SES Component

Send Emails through Amazon (AWS) SES

Component key: aws-ses

Description#

Amazon SES is a service that enables developers to send mail from within any application. The Amazon SES component allows you to list identities, and send emails to those identities.

You must validate email addresses or domains

Before you can send an email using Amazon SES, you must verify that you are the owner of the email address or domain that you want to send email from. You can do that from the SES admin page on the AWS console.

Amazon SES Connections#

AWS SES Access Key and Secret#

An AWS IAM access key pair is required to interact with Amazon SES. Make sure that the key pair you generate in AWS has proper permissions to the SES resources you want to access. Read about Amazon SES IAM policies in the AWS docs.
