Amazon Sandbox : How to Increase Email Sending Limit?

Hello Friends,

In this post, I am going to discuss Amazon SES sending limit of emails.

If you choose AWS SES or SMTP for sending your emails then you need to create a case for requesting the sending limit for your email campaign.

Why Do we need to request for sending limit….? does AWS SES does not provide the link with the account creation or after email verification….?

Actually, when we create a fresh AWS SES account then we are kept at sandbox mode at starting for some security and verification purpose.

In sandbox mode, we can only send 200emails/day and these emails can only be delivered to the SES verified email addresses.

So for sending the message in bulk, we need to create a request for increasing our email sending limit in the specified direction.

So do we need to create this request again and again….?

No, this is one-time process, once your sending limit is increased then it will automatically increase as per your use, you will not have to be bothered for limit then.

What is this sandbox mode…?

Sandbox mode is a basic account setup with a primary privilege of 200emails/day to the specified AWS verified Email id.

Please visit the extensive link below with detail description over sandbox mode.

How can we come out from this sandbox mode and can send our email campaign for regular basis…..?

It is a very simple process, you just create a case and then AWS will approve your request within 24 hours even quicker.
