Vorteile:

Straightforward service; very cost effective for low/medium volumes of email.

Great relation price vs quality

5,0 letzten Monat Neu

Kommentare: Overall the experience has been just great. The service simply works, although it's a little complex the first time to setup but once we get used to it (as with anything else in life), it's a little bit of work that is worth it for the price we pay for.

Vorteile:

Price per 1k emails is incredible. As of this writing, we are talking about $0.10 per 1k emails sent, which is really now.

Nachteile:

Their support is getting worse. Very recently I had to wait a month until an account from one of our customers was finally approved and then a couple of months later, we had another customer that was rejected for no reason whatsoever and we had to escalate to have it into production.

Amazon SES satisfies your email needs based Amazon's economy of scale

5,0 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: We are solving the need of simple, reliable bulk email that scales and delivers with confidence.

Vorteile:

Amazon SES is a relatively simple integration despite the need of better documentation, has an very developer-minded logic and allows you to share data to other Amazon AWS services for analytics, monitoring and others. It is the way to go when you want to have bulk email at a fraction of the costs incurred with other competitors. It is extremely reliable and has the Amazon infrastructure to support it. The web console is simple yet provides you with the essentials to monitor the account's health and performance.

Nachteile:

Having migrated from Mailgun, I really felt the lack of proper development documentation when you are integrating for the first time. The current documentation is not well organized and lacks the developer friendlyness that you can find with competing products. However, this may have to do with a more general, bulk approach that Amazon focuses on. There are different versions of their APIs in the process of being migrated with the newer version being somewhat limited in features compared to the older one. My recommendation is that you get prepared to read a lot and test as you start to implement. I don't think you will be provided with bleeding edge email developments early but the basics will always be covered with Amazon SES.

No Support for Amazon Simple Email Service

3,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: It was good to start, but frustrating once we wanted to go further and when we had any issues whatsoever. It was at the owners decision that we pulled the plug on this project once he listened in on our support call, once we did get someone to talk to us.

Vorteile:

this is a very simple but capable email system that we tried to use and i have worked with others who have used it. the feature set is good, the speed is excellent and the ability to lease an IP and to have tiered levels is very good. It also has a good reputation dashboard so we know what is going on and how to make sure we get lots of emails through spam filters

Nachteile:

Spam filters eventually catch up to you. Also they provide no support via phone that is worthwhile. The support techs are condescending and not very helpful. They close cases very fast, they send pre-canned responses that do not answer the questions you ask, and it is useless to talk to them. We moved away from them after we could not get what we needed done.

You can't beat the price to performance ratio

5,0 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: My experience overall has been extremely positive, the price makes it the best tool out there for sending a lot of emails. Emails land straight in inbox as they should, and the tools to help manage bounces and complaints included are top notch. I'd recommend Amazon SES to anyone who sends a lot of emails.

Vorteile:

I like how easy it is to get started with SES as well as how cheap and reliable the service is.

Nachteile:

The dashboard takes a bit of getting used to, but it's manageable

Amazon Simple Email Service - does what it says on the tin

5,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: I have used SES in multiple projects and it has proven itself to be a reliable service time and time again. The pricing is amazing and whilst you don't get all the bells and whistles other more fully featured services offer it does what it says on the tin. I've used it for multiple different projects utilising both API and SMTP connectivity and both have been solid.

Vorteile:

The pricing is amazing for such a great service. The API is well documented and SDKs are available for the most popular languages. If you are integrating with legacy systems where you have no API access and require an MTA to be configured that i also supported. There's a generous free tier available for smaller projects as well (so long as you are using either EC2 or Lambda to integrate).

Nachteile:

There's really not much to dislike about SES. A dashboard like Sendgrid provides would be a nice additional option but it's aimed at doing one thing and doing it well.

By far the best feature within the AWS suite

5,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: We have been using SES for transactional as well as marketing(newsletter) email delivery. We love it.

Vorteile:

It works, and is cheap. There is nothing of the sort to compete with SES for what it offers

Nachteile:

Needs skillful setup as well as administration. Reports are not comprehensive and need SNS knowledge to be able to generate

The cheapest but the hardest to configure

5,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: I have some knowledge and I read a lot to be able to configure it as I wanted, which sometimes it was frustrating, but I finally made it as I wanted and need it, that plus the price, the results... Awesome!

Vorteile:

What I love the most is "The pricing", it is extremely cheap compared with other massive mailing systems like mail chimp or others.

Nachteile:

The ease of configuration... You need a little bit of knowledge to configure, and even more knowledge if you want more specific features.

I only pay for what I use, how much better can it get!

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: I use it in tangent with another program that allows me to send thousands of emails through my Gmail account. It makes it easy, simple, effective and an overall no-brainer to get those emails out daily. I don't have to worry about delivery or bounce either, which is something I can't say for plenty other similar services.

Vorteile:

One of the biggest things about this program that I absolutely love is the fact that you are only charged for what you used. That alone makes Amazon SES great in my book because I know that I am only paying for the features that I have used over the period of time. It's also very flexible in connecting to various other software/programs etc.

Nachteile:

It can be a bit tricky to figure out how to use the backend for those who are not tech-savvy. As a result, I think that might be something that they can try to improve a little bit. But other than that I'd say it's pretty impressive.

Perfect for transactional emails

5,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: I used SES to send notifications from a web platform when certain events occurred.
We had a 100% success rate and were never disappointed y the product.

Vorteile:

- It's easy to configure and implement - It makes sending transactional emails very easy - Costs can be easily forwarded to clients

Nachteile:

SES requires technical skills, so only developers can actually access it features, but that's reasonable given the features the product offers.

Reliable and Cost Effective Business Email

5,0 letztes Jahr

Kommentare: I initially started using this service for two reasons:
#1 The email reputation for my domain (and client domains) was poor and needed to be relayed though a trusted provider with higher reputations.
#2 The server being used was having load issues because of the added email traffic - Moving email to Amazon SES quickly solved that issue.
I liked that it was fairly easy to set up, and there were a lot of "how to" guides available. I like that this is well supported.
I would recommend this to anyone looking for an affordable and reliable solution.

Vorteile:

Three features are most impactful to my business. 1 - The service is very affordable, this helps preserve budget. 2 - Arguably this is one of the most reliable email solutions I've used. 3 - The automated suppression list helps my business maintain a positive email reputation (so my email messages don't go to junk). Also, I should mention their support was great, and the odd time I felt I needed to reach out, they've exceeded my expectations. Additionally, scaling up (if needed) it easy to do as well, so I know this can grow with my business.

Nachteile:

One thing I thought could be improved was the allowed size of each email message was too small. However, Amazon SES provides a form where you can request to be able to relay email that's up to 10MB each (and it's super easy to request and receive).

Simple like in the name and really cheap

5,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: We have been using SES for a couple of years now and are very happy with it. It's simple, stable and fast. Pretty much all you need..

Vorteile:

Amazon SES is super straightforward and cheap. You can set it up in no time and it just works. At first your sending limits might be limited but once you have built your reputation and they go up you can send big batches of emails easily. We use it for our marketing automation suites and for our operational messages.

Nachteile:

Reporting is a little more difficult to setup. It works with other products from Amazon and just isnt as straightforward.

does a wonderful job , and reliably at the given price point especially when you have limited base

4,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: Overall it is one of the most reliable email services out there. it can save you money and help you for both internal dev and marketing.

Vorteile:

this is probably the most inexpensive yet reliable bulk email tool out there in the market and competes head to head with mailchimp and others. aws ses is the classic case of set and forget, where once you are configured then you are good to go, no need for maintenance.

Nachteile:

very limited service regions would be the biggest con. there is an initial limitation on how many emails you can send before you get approved

Affordable and reliable simple email service

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Vorteile:

We have been using Amazon SES for our marketing campaigns for a very long time and I must say the platform is very affordable, reliable and simple. Before using the Amazon SES we were paying very high to some other vendors for our marketing campaigns and bulk email campaigns whereas after switching to SES the cost for email campaigns reduced drastically and now we are allocating that excess funds to some ad campaigns. Also the delivery rate is phenomenally good. Apart from that after removing the sending limit cap we now can send to huge number of our customers at a time without raising any eye.

Nachteile:

The integration part to third party vendors can be little bit less complicated.

Vorteile:

Nachteile:

Lack of incoming email security control tools.

The only right way to run databased on AWS

5,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: SES is vital to our cloud operations and won't be going anywhere as long as we're running databases.

Vorteile:

A managed environment for data is, in my opinion, a must. Turn-key log-based backups and recovery with all necessary features. A good number of database options.

Nachteile:

Lacks direct access to the machine so this is limiting as to what can be set on each database. While most things are possible, there's a learning curve to accomplish some more advanced configuration.

Perfect high-volume email solution

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: We have a newsletter that is sent out to our clients on a regular basis. Managing that email system ourselves was more work than we wanted to deal with. SES is very affordable and relatively easy to use. As mentioned in Cons, my only complaint is with incoming email being either expensive (WorkMail isn't worth the money IMO), complicated (setting up your own income email solution), or messy (mail forwarded with SNS is unformatted and JSON encoded).

Vorteile:

Setting up an email server is relatively complicated. It's made even worse when dealing with a high volume of outgoing emails. AWS SES makes it much easier than any DIY option out there, giving you the exact DNS records to enter.

Nachteile:

As with most AWS services, it will take a little learning. Compared to some of their other services though, SES is quite straight forward. I really don't like that there is no simple incoming email forwarding option. It can use SNS to forward a JSON encoded mess, but unless you are using their WorkMail service, receiving mail is still something you'll have to figure out.

Great email service for any type of emails (cold outreach, automations, simple emailing)

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Vorteile:

Dirt-cheap email service from Amazon. It's super-reliable and easy to set up. Integrates nicely with the rest of the Amazon stack.

Nachteile:

Sender domains must be whitelisted and verification is done through DNS records, which can be inconvenient at times.

My experience with SES

5,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: Our product notifications and delivered using SES and our overall experience was good

Vorteile:

I have been involved with the process of setting up Amazon SES in the organisation. Our infrastructure is hosted on AWS, hence we decided to go with SES. The delivery rates are great. I think the best part about this is how cost effective it is. You get a robust tool for a low cost budget.

Nachteile:

Implementing SES was not as easy as it seems. However, once it is configured, it is quite easy to operate

Easy integration and robustness.

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Vorteile:

Amazon SES is easy to setup and use. It has Python and other libraries to integrate it to your project. Sending email in HTML or text is possible and MIME can be used as well. For MIME, it supports different email encodings as well, which is great if you are trying to write something non-latin in mail subject.

Nachteile:

Authorization of your domain might take some time, it's not that instant.
