This course takes a domain through three stages: #1 - pending verification, #2 - in the sandbox while getting setup to handle bounces and complaints, and #3 - leaving the sandbox by requesting a rate increase
- [Instructor] This course is broken down into four chapters. In the first chapter we'll walk through how to set up SES so that you can start sending test messages. You will start your journey in the sandbox where you are limited to only sending email to approved test addresses while you build out your email solution. In chapter two we'll show you how to connect SES to WordPress. We're using WordPress as an example of one web based product you can connect to SES. So this chapter is optional if you aren't using WordPress in your use case for SES.
I'll show you how you can use Lambda to automatically remove bounced emails from your WordPress mailing list. This is a good starting point to automating SES and customizing it to your application. Another quick note, for the next video I'm going to be using a sample domain that I quickly created. The rest of the course uses a separate domain. I did it this way so I could demonstrate the procedure for setting up DKIM for the sample domain. Anyway enough talk, let's get going with the course.
- Setting up DKIM
- Verifying test email addresses
- Sending email with SES and SMTP
- Sending email from WordPress with SES
- Setting up probation warnings
- Reducing bounces and complaints in SES
- Handling bounces with serverless Lambda functions
