Simple Email


Simple Email reconfigures WordPress’ WP_Mail function to use Amazon’s Simple Email Service

Known limitations (your mileage may vary):

  • Does not support attachments
  • Emails will no longer come from but from the authenticated address (see installation)

Thank you to Dan Myers for the SES library used.


  1. Upload files to /wp-content/plugins directory
  2. Edit simple-email.php and add your AWS API key and secret
  3. You must also provide a previously authenticated email address to use as the From address
  4. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
