i tried to use Amazon SES with sendmail on my ubuntu server for sending mail because EC2 ips are blacklisted and i followed the following tutorial


But its not working don't know why please help me


Amazon just released SMTP access to SES and it's not too difficult to setup now. I whipped up a quick howto this morning: http://www.millcreeksys.com/2011/12/14/how-to-configure-your-postfix-server-to-relay-email-through-amazon-simple-email-service-ses/

  • Very helpful, thanks for taking the time to write your article! – cfeduke Jan 3 '12 at 20:09

Did you request production access ? If not you may only send email from and to verified email addresses.


This has been improved by AWS. Go here for setup instructions: http://docs.aws.amazon.com/ses/latest/DeveloperGuide/sendmail.html

Then PHP and other languages can simply use sendmail out of the box.
