Amazon Simple Email Service
(Amazon SES) is a cloud-based email sending service designed to help digital marketers and application
developers send marketing, notification, and transactional emails.
LicenseQuote is using Amazon SES to send notification emails to Store users. Because
of limitations of the service, it is impossible to use arbitrary email address in the
‘From’ field. Amazon SES blocks any email with unverified value of its
‘From’ field. It only accepts verified email address.
You can verify your email at Amazon SES on the ‘Console Users’ page.
To verify your email at Amazon SES you should click on the ‘Verify Email at Amazon SES’ link.
In the ‘Verify Email’ dialog you can see three sections.
1. Email Status Section
Here you can see your email address and its ‘VERIFIED’ or ‘UNVERIFED’.
You can always refresh status by clicking on the ‘Refresh Status’ button nearby.
If your email address has verification status ‘VERIFIED’ then you can set
‘Use your verified Email Address in store Emails’ checkbox. Then click
on ‘Save’ button to save your settings.
2. Email Verification Section
Here you can start verification process. To verify your email address shown in the
section above you have to click on the ‘Verify’ button. Then you will
receive ‘Email Address Verification Request’ from ‘Amazon Web Services’. To complete verification
you have to go to the URL in the email to confirm that you are authorized to use this email
When you need to remove verification from your email just click on the ‘Unverify’ button.
3. Email Checking Section
Sometimes Amazon SES does not allow to send email from certain email address to prevent spam.
To make sure that everything works you have to check this by sending test email from your email address.
For that you should click on the ‘Check Verified’ button. This forces LicenseQuote to send test
email with your verified email address value in the ‘From’ field to the same mailbox.
If Amazon SES cannot send this email then you will receive ‘Delivery Status Notification (Failure)’
email from MAILER-DAEMON@amazonses.com at your mailbox.
