  • It offers good reputed IPs, so generally our emails don't directly jump to the spam folder.
  • It would be great if they could help us to track the deliveries of the emails sent via SES.
  • For beginners, setting up Amazon Simple Email Service for the first time might be a little difficult task.
  • Might not that be good for a non-tech savvy person.
