I have a domain configured to send mails using Amazon SES. Both sending and receiving using normal SMTP server are working just fine. I have MX record setup as feedback-smtp.us-west-2.amazonses.com (10) and using mail from domain mail.mydomain.com. I have two e-mail addresses 'mail@mydomain.com' and 'sales@mydomain.com'. I now need to enable receiving using Amazon SES to process emails coming on 'mail@mydomain.com' through SNS. I have verified this e-mail address and created rules to process it through SNS. The receiving documentation states that I need to setup MX record as inbound-smtp.us-west-2.amazonaws.com which I did. I am successfully receiving incoming notifications for 'mail@mydomain.com' but mail receiving has stopped on 'sales@mydomain.com'. The mails sent on this address are bouncing. To be specific, I need to know: "Does enabling receiving for one e-mail address on a domain has effect on all e-mail addresses of the domain?"

    Setting up MX records will point all email for that domain to those records, so yes, mail to sales@example.com will now be going to SES too.
