Sending a Message to an Email Address in Amazon SES

The following example demonstrates how to use the AWS SDK for Go to send a message to an Amazon SES email address.

package main import ( "fmt" //go get -u "" "" "" "" ) const ( // Replace with your "From" address. // This address must be verified with Amazon SES. Sender = "" // Replace with a "To" address. If your account // is still in the sandbox, this address must be verified. Recipient = "" // Specify a configuration set. To use a configuration // set, comment the next line and line 92. //ConfigurationSet = "ConfigSet" // The subject line for the email. Subject = "Amazon SES Test (AWS SDK for Go)" // The HTML body for the email. HtmlBody = "<h1>Amazon SES Test Email (AWS SDK for Go)</h1><p>This email was sent with " + "<a href=''>Amazon SES</a> using the " + "<a href=''>AWS SDK for Go</a>.</p>" //The email body for recipients with non-HTML email clients. TextBody = "This email was sent with Amazon SES using the AWS SDK for Go." // The character encoding for the email. CharSet = "UTF-8" ) func main() { // Create a new session in the us-west-2 region. // Replace us-west-2 with the AWS Region you're using for Amazon SES. sess, err := session.NewSession(&aws.Config{ Region:aws.String("us-west-2")}, ) // Create an SES session. svc := ses.New(sess) // Assemble the email. input := &ses.SendEmailInput{ Destination: &ses.Destination{ CcAddresses: []*string{ }, ToAddresses: []*string{ aws.String(Recipient), }, }, Message: &ses.Message{ Body: &ses.Body{ Html: &ses.Content{ Charset: aws.String(CharSet), Data: aws.String(HtmlBody), }, Text: &ses.Content{ Charset: aws.String(CharSet), Data: aws.String(TextBody), }, }, Subject: &ses.Content{ Charset: aws.String(CharSet), Data: aws.String(Subject), }, }, Source: aws.String(Sender), // Uncomment to use a configuration set //ConfigurationSetName: aws.String(ConfigurationSet), } // Attempt to send the email. result, err := svc.SendEmail(input) // Display error messages if they occur. if err != nil { if aerr, ok := err.(awserr.Error); ok { switch aerr.Code() { case ses.ErrCodeMessageRejected: fmt.Println(ses.ErrCodeMessageRejected, aerr.Error()) case ses.ErrCodeMailFromDomainNotVerifiedException: fmt.Println(ses.ErrCodeMailFromDomainNotVerifiedException, aerr.Error()) case ses.ErrCodeConfigurationSetDoesNotExistException: fmt.Println(ses.ErrCodeConfigurationSetDoesNotExistException, aerr.Error()) default: fmt.Println(aerr.Error()) } } else { // Print the error, cast err to awserr.Error to get the Code and // Message from an error. fmt.Println(err.Error()) } return } fmt.Println("Email Sent to address: " + Recipient) fmt.Println(result) }
