Integrate quickly

Using either the Amazon SES console, APIs, or SMTP, you can configure email sending in minutes. Amazon SES also supports email receiving, enabling you to interact with your customers at scale. Regardless of use case or sending volume, you only pay for what you use with Amazon SES.

Optimize your deliverability

Use the reputation dashboard, which includes account performance insights and anti-spam feedback, to maximize your deliverability. You have flexible deployment options that range from shared, dedicated, and customer-owned IPs that helps you influence your sending reputation. Amazon SES has relationships with experts like M3AAG to improve delivery to your customers through industry best practices.

Send messages efficiently

Email sending statistics, including email deliveries, bounces, and feedback loop results, help you to measure the effectiveness of each email outreach. Additional insights like email open or click-through rates measure how engaged your customers are in your email communications.

Scale securely

Amazon SES authentication options such as Sender Policy Framework (SPF) and DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) confirms your right to send on behalf of your domain. Virtual private cloud (VPC) support makes email sending from any application secure. Amazon SES is globally available with HIPAA eligibility, in-region compliance (C5, IRAP) and global certifications (Fed-Ramp, ISO, GDPR).

Send immediate, trigger-based communications from your application to customers, such as purchase confirmations or password resets.

At Reddit, we want to help our users stay up-to-date with content and discussions that interest them the most. As we continue to evolve our engagement strategy, we needed an email provider that was flexible and could scale to support our millions of global users. We started using Amazon SES a few years ago to meet those needs and haven’t looked back.

- Alex Riccomini, Senior Director  


We evaluated several email delivery solutions and decided on Amazon SES because it is flexible, affordable, highly scalable, has global reach, and promises excellent deliverability. Through a combination of the SES Dedicated IP offering and some strategies implemented on our end, after migrating to Amazon SES, we were able to streamline operations, improve Inbox placement and increase our email sender reputation score.

Devika Chowla, Director of Messaging & Contact Engineering


We use email to encourage our learners to practice every day and turn learning into a habit. We chose Amazon SES because it integrates nicely with the rest of AWS's powerful offerings, and we continue to use it because it has the scalability to send huge volumes of emails to hundreds of millions of learners reliably.
