Amazon has one of the most reliable web infrastructure service for business, and, for past many years many of the businesses have started migrating their IT infrastructure with Amazon Web Services. Some of the most popular AWS services include, EBS, EC2, SQS, S3 Bucket, and RDS instances. But, apart from all these services, we also have Amazon Simple Email Service, which is email relay SMTP server. This email relay service is available with Amazon Web Services for a long time, but very few of the business have taken deeper interest in deploying and using this email service.
Amazon Simple Email Service which is also known as Amazon SES provides facility to businesses in various ways. Using this service you can send Transaction emails which includes emails for user registration, password change notification emails and so on. Not only this, using external solutions like Sendy, you can also send marketing emails to a large list of opt-in email subscribers at once. But, did you know you can also use Sendy for transaction emails configured with Amazon SES gateway?
Yes. Initially, Sendy was made for this purpose only which made use of Sendy API to trigger emails and send to the list of customers. By default, it is little difficult for anyone to use Amazon SES, because it doesnot have many features like, storing email templates, personalization tags and so on. Basically, Amazon SES is a raw email sending gateway, which you can use according to your requirements.

You should use necessary tags inside the email template in order to make the email look personalized. Once you are done with the editing of the template, just save it in the gallery.
After you have defined both custom field and email templates, now you can start integrating Sendy API with your application or service. Using Sendy API, you can Subscribe, Unsubscribe, Get Subscription status, and also get to know the Active subscriber count in a particular email list. Moreover, using API you can also create email campaigns.
