Overall Satisfaction with Amazon Simple Email Service

We are starting to use the AWS ecosystem for different developments. So for our department in our organization our demos are hosted on AWS and we are sending all the outbound emails using AWS SES. The benefit of this is we don't have to set up an SMTP server and we can directly use this feature with no extra efforts.
  • No SMTP server setup if already in AWS ecosystem
  • Quick and Easy setup & integration
  • Pay as you use - no extra cost
  • Always verifies the email before you can it. Hectic process.
  • Email template facility is not available.
  • Quick setup saves time and no maintenance needed.
  • Cheap as compared to some other SMTP servers so it saves money in our organization.
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.

Yes

Would you buy Amazon Simple Email Service again?

Yes

In our demos, we try sending the reports to the email ids from which the user is logged in. Our demos are hosted on AWS ECS and the whole demo works on the AWS ecosystem. So to send the reports we use AWS SES as it is in the same ecosystem, no extra SMTP configuration needed and it is very easy. So in this way, we use SES for many demos and other use as well.
