Amazon SES

If you're working with an AWS infrastructure this is the best move, as you will get great benefits from using it and your development team will feel that they know what they're doing. If you're not using AWS, this probably can be a problem, as you will not get the 62,000 emails for free, or developers will feel a little strange working with different technologies.

Pros

Amazon SES

  • SES is highly reliable. Haven't had any issues that I know of.
  • It is extremely cost effective. Most of the time we stay under the free tier which is nice!
  • Once set up, it's pretty much hands free. Haven't had to adjust old code... ever.

Cons

Amazon SES

  • Even if you do not want to spam, you cant send an email to the unverified users.
  • Integration with other services is a bit tricky. To watch the trail, handle bounced emails, save emails on S3 are not straightforward to implement.
  • When you want to send a lot of emails (in bulk), it takes a significant amount of time.

The support from AWS has always been good. There is no complaint from my organization. Also, the documentation is very good so I don't find any difficulties in this. So overall it is a very easy and smooth process to adapt.

Alternatives Considered

Amazon SES

I'd recommend SendGrid and MailChimp to most smaller business that can't dedicate engineers solely to their email pipeline. The price/value ration is fair and the tools are fairly flexible for the intended use cases. It's often a good idea to start to start there and only pivot later when needed.

Mailup has hands down the best editor for creating responsive emails, I've tried almost everything out there and this is the best, I recommend this to colleagues all the time!

Return on Investment

Amazon SES

  • Our cost of sending emails is negligible.
  • We have very high confidence in our email delivery.
  • The speed of sending is awesome. We have sent out thousands of emails in minutes - once we sent out mail as a shout out to dormant users- and it worked very well.
