I want to send higher volumes of email through Amazon SES. How do I increase my sending limits?

By default, accounts are placed in the Amazon Simple Email Service (Amazon SES) sandbox, which enables you to configure your infrastructure and evaluate Amazon SES. The sandbox has the following restrictions:

  • You can send mail only to the Amazon SES mailbox simulator and to verified email addresses and domains.
  • You can send mail only from verified email addresses and domains.
  • You can send a maximum of 200 messages per 24-hour period.
  • Amazon SES can accept a maximum of one message from your account per second.

When you’re ready to send higher volumes of mail to email addresses that are not verified, you can request higher sending limits. For instructions, see Moving Out of the Amazon SES Sandbox.

Note: You must request sending limit increases individually for each AWS Region.
