[resolved] How to send form-mail via Amazon SES? (8 posts)

    My WP site is hosted in the Amazon cloud and in order to send emails one has to use their SES service (Simple-Email-Service). I'm using the WP-SES plugin, which works nicely.

    However, when the Contact-Form-7 plugin tries to send email it's going straight to /usr/sbin/sendmail, which is not installed nor needed.

    Question: How can I tweak this plugin to send the form-email via SES and the support the WP-SES plugin provides?

    I haven't heard about the WP-SES plugin. Where can I get it from?

    wp_mail() function.

    According to the first QA in the FAQ at http://wp-ses.com/faq.html, it intercepts wp_mail(). So, your plugin *should* work with WP-SES.

    However, my Apache error.log shows that it tries to locate /usr/sbin/sendmail.

    WP-SES's readme.txt says:

    WP-SES redirects All outgoing WordPress emails through Amazon Simple Email Service (SES) instead of local wp_mail function.

    It doesn't intercept wp_mail(). Instead, it does try to replace wp_mail().

    It seems to work now, after a restart.
    Sorry to have raised a false concern.

    HI @jens.riboe

    Can I ask you a little more of your setup.

    a) did you sentup the sending in contact 7 form to be one email address
    b) then you added this email address to be in your verified senders on SES

    thanks

    Mark
