Works! On site with Postmatic, WP Members, Epoch, Woocommerce
By , for WP 4.6

Struggled with various child-theme code additions which did not work. Stumped until I found WP-SES which worked perfectly. Yes you do have to do some fiddling, but if you have set up AWS SES, you are on easy street. I set up a new IAM and input those credentials. Disclosure: I am not any sort of programmer.

Did I mention IT WORKS! Thank you Sylvain Deaure!

Make sure setup IAM user with SES only!

Don't create a general security credential access / secret key - unless you don't mind exposing all AWS services!

Nice, but couldn't get reply-to working

Totally great!

I was a tiny bit confused at first, but then I actually read the installation instructions at https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-ses/installation/ and everything was dandy. It helps to have a basic understanding of AWS SES of course. The plugin's logging feature was useful and I got back some helpful error messages while setting it up. The whole thing took me 10 minutes and works like a charm.

Buggy/conflicts with other plugins.
By , for WP 3.8

Running this on 2x sites. Generally the plugin does a good job of configuring itself with AWS/SES.

However on both sites it continually disables itself due to conflicts with other plugins.

Troubleshooting with sites that have a large number of plugins seems fruitless.

Either it overwrites other email functionality or it doesn't. Apparently, It doesn't.

Problems with file encoding
By ,

It seems that the plugin has a problem. Some files are using us-ascii encoding and others files are using UTF-8

The problem of this is that the 'from_name' property of the plugin is not supporting special characters like ã é
