Amazon SES notes

Amazon IAM policy to restrict sending email from a single address{
  "Version": "2012-10-17",
  "Statement": [
    {
"Effect": "Allow",
    "Action": "ses:SendRawEmail",
    "Resource": "*",
    "Condition": {
      "StringLike": {
        "ses:FromAddress": "username@domain.com"
      }
    }
  }
  ]
}

Replace `username@domain.com` with `*@domain.com` to allow sending from any addresses.
Generate SMTP password from the secret access key Official document is available at docs.aws.amazon.com. Usage is like this:

./ses.py --secret DmxxxOY --region us-west-2

Test SMTP credentials I use the swaks script (source: wiert.me):

brew install swaks

swaks -tls --to xxx@gmail.com \
  --from username@domain.com \
  --server email-smtp.us-west-2.amazonaws.com \
  --auth-user AKxxxOP

If everything is setup correctly, you should receive the test email in your inbox.
