Creating an Amazon Pinpoint Project with Email Support

You can create a new project with email support by using AWS Mobile Hub. In the Mobile Hub console, create a project, and add the Messaging & Analytics feature. Then, enable the email channel as part of that feature. After you create a project in Mobile Hub, the project becomes available in Amazon Pinpoint.

You can also enable the email channel for an existing Amazon Pinpoint project by using the Settings page in the Amazon Pinpoint console. For more information, see Updating Email Settings.

To create a project with email support

  1. Sign in to the AWS Management Console and open the Mobile Hub console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/mobilehub.

  2. If you have other Mobile Hub projects, choose Create new mobile project. If this is your first project, skip this step because you are taken directly to the page for creating a new project.

  3. Enter a project name. The name you enter will be the name of your project in the Amazon Pinpoint console.

  4. For the region, keep US East (Virginia).

  5. Choose Create project. Mobile Hub creates the project and shows the Pick and configure features for your project page.

  6. Choose Messaging & Analytics.

  7. On the Messaging & Analytics page, for What engagement features do you want to enable?, choose Messaging.

  8. For What Messaging Channels do you want to enable?, choose Email.

  9. For Do you want to enable email messaging?, choose Enable.

  10. To verify your email address or domain, choose the Amazon Pinpoint console link. You are directed to the Settings page in the Amazon Pinpoint console, where you complete the following steps:

    1. Choose the email identity that you want to use: Email address or Email domain.

    2. Provide your email address or domain, and choose Verify. Then, follow the instructions displayed by the console.

      If you verify an email address, Amazon Pinpoint sends a verification email to the address that you provide. Follow the instructions in the email to complete the verification process.

      If you verify an email domain, the console displays a TXT record that you must add to the domain's DNS settings. For more information, see Domain Verification TXT Records.

      For more information on verifying an email address or domain, see Email Address or Domain Verification.

    3. When you finish, choose Save.

  11. In the Mobile Hub console, for What engagement features do you want to enable?, choose Analytics, and choose Enable. With analytics enabled, Amazon Pinpoint provides metrics about your email campaign activity.
