AWS SES: A Complete Guide To Setup.

Hello Friends,

In this blog post, I am going to let you know, how to make the setup for the AWS SES or SES for sending the emails.

AWS SES service is responsible for sending your emails with a good email delivery rate.

Why is it called AWS SES but not AWS SMTP?

There is nothing like this, this is just a name given by them to their service may be AWS provides some additional service with this like SNS for spam and bounce configuration and etc…… so they just would have given this name. do not confuse with this name aws ses.

Actually, AWS SES is the SMTP service which sends your emails to the destination. But for the email template building and to get all the track report you will just need to connect with one of the good ESP like Convert kit and etc..


The ESP like Elastic Email, SparkPost and etc… have their own SMTP, so why should use this AWS SES for extra to send our emails?

This is up to you if your ESP has built in SMTP then you can go with that all in one. But if you are not satisfied with the email delivery rate or spam and bounce configuration then you can choose the AWS SES as this is much reliable and authentic SMTP, and here domain verification is not compulsory.

In case you want to remove via Amazon sign from your emails then you can verify your domain.

After this, you will get the SMTP relay details from your AWS account and will connect through your chosen ESP.
