If you're visiting this page and distressed by its incompleteness - rest assured that we HAVE successfully set up Amazon SES on EC2 for a client.  However, we didn't document it - this page is to capture the documentation from setting up SES in January 2015 for a new client.

* Have client sign up for Amazon AWS, which involves credit cards, identity verification, etc.
8 2 Jon Goldberg
* Ideally, have them click on "SES" at the AWS console, to do the phone verification.
9 2 Jon Goldberg
* Log onto AWS, select SES.  Note that you only have sandbox access at this time.
10 2 Jon Goldberg
* Click on "SMTP Settings" on the left, record the server info, generate SMTP credentials and record those too.
11 2 Jon Goldberg
* Click on "Verified Senders: Domains".  Click "Verify a new Domain".  Enter the client's domain name; also click "Generate DKIM settings".

* Download these credentials, don't just copy/paste from the screen, because they tend to get cut off.
13 2 Jon Goldberg
* Update the DNS with the verification credentials.
14 2 Jon Goldberg
** *NOTE: This will likely take several hours, even after DNS has propagated.*

* Also add your own e-mail address the the verified sender - email address list.  This just requires receiving a verification email.
