Hi, Can we use Amazon SES as an email sending provider through this hosting? Thanks!

Sorry for this dummy question because I am new on such matters. How should I make it work? Where do I get things like port number, server name that I need to connect to Amazon SES?
By the way, what is the email sending limitations on Digitalocean hosting?

Thanks.
"Where do I get things like port number, server name...."

You set these yourself.

"By the way, what is the email sending limitations on Digitalocean hosting?"

You cannot send SPAM.
We use SES from our Droplets, no problem. If you just need to send emails, SES offers SMTP connection which makes integration super easy.
  • mick254264, so you are able to send emails with SES from a droplet? When I tried to do it from the droplet, I always get this error:

    to=my@email.com, relay=none, delay=592, delays=592/0.07/0/0, dsn=4.4.3, status=deferred (Host or domain name not found. Name service error for name=email-smtp.us-east-1.amazonaws.com type=MX: Host not found, try again)

    But when I do it from EC2 instance, it works fine.

    Both droplet and EC2 have identical postfix settings.

    Any idea? Please advise!

    Thanks so much.

Yes Absolutely,

Rather than building complete SMTP server, we have used Digital Ocean superfast SSD server and Amazon SES to send a Million mails few week back at cost of $100 only!

I have made this complete guide on how to here:
