Overall Satisfaction with Amazon Simple Email Service

We use Amazon Simple Email Service (SES) on several client accounts as well as several of our own applications and services. We primarily use Amazon Simple Email Service to send informational emails related to status notifications, important updates, and information requests within different applications and services. We've implemented SES for as many as 50 domains and feel confident when recommending it to clients.
  • Amazon Simple Email Service is a much lower cost than most other solutions and truly makes cost a non-factor in most situations where we consider implementing it.
  • The API is so well documented that implementing Amazon Simple Email Service in nearly any application or codebase is achievable with basic coding knowledge.
  • While the service limits are one of the main points that keep the delivery metrics so reliable, it can be stressful to get a new implementation out the door quickly.
  • If you're looking for a point-and-click style email delivery tool, this is not the right type of product for you. Amazon Simple Email Service is for a developer-centric approach to implementation into existing applications, processes, and services.
  • Amazon Simple Email Service has improved delivery rates and eliminated delivery issues everywhere we have impelmented it.
  • We have been able to enforce stricter security within our application environments because we are using Amazon Simple Email Service instead of handling email transmissions natively.
When service limits or troubleshooting issues have come up in the past, AWS support has always been very responsive and quick to make needed changes.

Amazon Simple Email Service is an excellent choice for integrating high-volume or important email delivery into an existing application, service, or custom established workflow in your organization. If you have a true development group looking for a seamless way of handling email delivery, this is the right product for you. It's easiest to set up if you're already using other AWS services such as Route53 for DNS but can function as a standalone service. However, if you're expecting a product that was designed to do all of its intended functions from a user interface, that's not what Amazon Simple Email Service was intended to be.
