In this article, we’ll discuss the procedure to build a Lambda function that will send an email to the specified recipient from the specified sender using Amazon Simple Email Service (SES). In this project, we’ll do everything in AWS console.

Before beginning, let’s understand some key concepts.

Amazon Simple Email Service (SES)

Amazon SES is an email platform that provides an easy, cost-effective way for us to send and receive email using our own email addresses and domains.

Using SES, we can send marketing emails such as special offers, transactional emails such as order confirmations, and other types of correspondence such as newsletters. When we use Amazon SES to receive mail, we can develop software solutions such as email autoresponders, email unsubscribe systems, and applications that generate customer support tickets from incoming emails.

Amazon SES eliminates infrastructure challenges such as email server management, network configuration etc.
