Maybe I am not understanding how to use Wordpress with Amazon SES, but I am under the impression that you can setup all Wordpress emails to be sent from your Amazon SES verified email to any email address.
For example, when Wordpress sends out emails for New Registrations on the site, or when new Sites get created in a Multisite environment. I have installed WP Mail SMTP and set Amazon SES and the Wordpress Plugin according to these instructions: https://www.organicweb.com.au/20679/wordpress/setup-amazon-ses/
After following the instructions, any emails that get sent out to any emails that are not verified with Amazon SES do not work. This makes no sense to me, but perhaps I need to edit the Policy that is attached to IAM users? The email address and domain is both VERIFIED. What else is there to do to get this working so that Wordpress can send all emails out?
This Simple Email Service is anything but simple!
Error I get is:
SMTP Error: data not accepted.SMTP server error: DATA END command failed Detail: Message rejected: Email address is not verified.
It is trying to verify the email address that it is sending to instead of verifying the email address that it is sending from.
