Amazon SES

If you are looking for a no fuss, functional email delivery engine at a very low cost, Amazon SES is great. But, there is a learning curve, the documentation is often dense and many times, you yearn for a simple GUI, while setting up your interface. SES has barebones analytics - virtually none. It also does not do list management. Mapping bounces to SNS is not very intuitive either. If you are sending embedded images, you need to load them from external servers.

Mailjet

It is very well suited for sending frequent newsletters and flyers. Its layouts are very relate-able for my products and services. The kind of preloaded templates I get on this software are very helpful for post sales communication of my products. My CRM team sends followup emails to our clients for post sales documentation.

Pros

  • Very high send rates. We often send out over 50,000 emails in a matter of minutes (30-40 minutes).
  • Very simple to authorize email sending from an entire domain.
  • You get full control of your emails and are not as strictly bound to a set of policies as you would be with an email "platform" like MailChimp. Of course, that means you have to do more legwork too.

Cons

  • SES knowledge to setup
  • Email marketing background to keep the lists with very low bounces and complaints

  • They don't have any mobile application of it. This is the major drawback of this software.
  • Their support facility takes longer time to resolve issues. They should have instant chat option also for quick solutions.
  • Post campaign reporting functionality could be more diversified. It seems basic only.

Alternatives Considered

The process of setting up Amazon was really easy and straightforward compared to Mandrill.
And right now Mandrill is an add-on in MailChimp, so no longer a real alternative.

I find Mailjet is better for creating emails for my recently launched products. I needed accuracy with the deliverability to my non-resident in India customers based in Europe for my products, and this software was capable of giving me great accuracy in that region.
