Simple Email Service (SES)

Simple Email Service (SES)

The Pro version ships with extended support Simple Email Service (SES), including a simple user interface to inspect email accounts and sent messages, as well as support for sending SES messages through an actual SMTP email server.

Please refer to the Configuration section for instructions on how to configure the connection parameters of your SMTP server (SMTP_HOST/SMTP_USER/SMTP_PASS).

Once your SMTP server has been configured, you can use the SES user interface in the Web app to create a new email account (e.g., user1@yourdomain.com), and then send an email via the command line (or your SES client SDK):

$ awslocal ses send-email --from user1@yourdomain.com --message 'Body={Text={Data="Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, ..."}},Subject={Data=Test Email}' --destination 'ToAddresses=recipient1@example.com'

The Web user interface then allows you to interactively browse through the sent email messages, as illustrated in the screenshot below:
