Config Amazon SES In ROR

Amazon SES
Amazon Simple Email Service (Amazon SES) is a cost-effective outbound-only email-sending service built on the reliable and scalable infrastructure that has developed to serve its own customer base. With Amazon SES, you can send transactional email, marketing messages, or any other type of high-quality content and you only pay for what you use.

Along with high deliver-ability, Amazon SES provides easy, real-time access to your sending statistics and built-in notifications for bounces and complaints to help you fine-tune your email-sending strategy.

Steps to set up Amazon SES in rails:-

1. Make an account on amazon services.

2. Go to the link

and click on button “create my smtp creds” and it will return a username and password
which we will use in our smtp settings

3. Now in config/applicaiton.rb

config.action_mailer.delivery_method = :smtp
config.action_mailer.default_url_options = { :host => 'localhost:3000'}
config.action_mailer.smtp_settings = {
:address => '',
:port => '25',
:domain => 'localhost:3000', # Your domain
:user_name => '************************’',
:password => '******************************************',
:authentication => :login,
:enable_starttls_auto => true
Domain will be changed according the server(like for production environment it will be production URL).

4. And we will start sending email,
The ‘Sender’ person should be verified by aws-ses.
and The user from in application will be the verified user.

5. The email sending procedure will be same as we use default behavior of action mailer but now the email will sent using Amazon SES.
