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!
Don't create a general security credential access / secret key - unless you don't mind exposing all AWS services!
Used it with Ninja forms. Everything except the Reply-To field worked.
This is a Great Plugin. A setup Guide Could Help though.
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.
wordpress multisite too
FAQ has easy to add snippets for wp-config
then after making sure things worked, network activated plugin
for as mind numbing working with AmazonAWS is this made it seem easy
Good to have amazon ses to have for shared hosting. Nice work team
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.
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
