Amazon SES

This guide helps you setup SurgeMail to send outgoing mail via an Amazon-SES account.

Signup on amazon’s website: http://aws.amazon.com/ses/

Follow this step by step guide to get your identifiers and install the developer tools perl scripts and to verify your account:

http://docs.amazonwebservices.com/ses/latest/GettingStartedGuide/

You should now have the perl scripts including: ses-send-email.pl copy this perl script to send.pl and add a line near the top so it will work when run from another directory, lets assume you installed it in c:\surgemail\amazon

Then you would add:

use lib ‘/surgemail/amazon’;

Next add a setting to surgemail to redirect outgoing email to this script, on windows the setting would look like this if you placed your credentials in a file ‘cred.txt’ in that same directory…

In this sample rule you should just use the email address you have verified, once tested you can replace it with “*” to use this robot for all outgoing email.

g_redirect_ses was=”VERIFIED@ADDRESS.COM” to=”|\perl\bin\perl.exe \surgemail\amazon\send.pl -r -k \surgemail\amazon\cred.txt”

On unix the slashes would go the other way and \perl\bin\perl.exe would probably not be required.

Now send a test message.

If it fails examine the logs, find the robot command line used and test it manually to see if it works.
