Amazon SES now enables you to authorize other AWS accounts and IAM users to send emails from your identities (email addresses and domains). With this feature, called sending authorization, you maintain complete control over your identities through the use of policies that expressly list who may send email from an identity, and under which conditions. For example, as a business owner, you might use sending authorization to enable an email marketing company to send marketing emails from an email address under your domain name, but only over a specific period of time.

To use sending authorization, you create a policy and attach it to an identity that you have verified with Amazon SES. When Amazon SES receives a request to send an email, it checks to see if there is a policy that authorizes the sender to use that identity.

To learn how to use sending authorization, see the Amazon SES Developer Guide.
