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!
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
This plugin is a good solution to fix some issues which we have with native email servers. The plugin not just maximizes email delivrability, but besides saves money( much expensive when we rely on Mail chimp or GetResponse) and reduces hassle.
I thank Sylvain Deaure for providing the plugin.
Works perfectly but you need to know how amazon SES Works...
i.e. don't expect the plugin to work instantly as amazon SES needs about a day to approve your account. Also don't forget to add the verified adress.
Else if you have issue my tip is to have a look at what is going on with wp mail log plugin as in my case it was always another plugin's fault that some emails were not delivered (some wordpress plugins seems to be a litle erratic on how they send emails...).
Good job !
Very little setup required. Plugin works well and is very easy to use.
