Constructors

NameDescription

Properties

NameTypeDescription
Public Property Destination Amazon.SimpleEmail.Model.Destination Gets and sets the property Destination.

The destination for this email, composed of To:, CC:, and BCC: fields.

Public Property Message Amazon.SimpleEmail.Model.Message Gets and sets the property Message.

The message to be sent.

Public Property ReplyToAddresses System.Collections.Generic.List<System.String> Gets and sets the property ReplyToAddresses.

The reply-to email address(es) for the message. If the recipient replies to the message, each reply-to address will receive the reply.

Public Property ReturnPath System.String Gets and sets the property ReturnPath.

The email address to which bounces and complaints are to be forwarded when feedback forwarding is enabled. If the message cannot be delivered to the recipient, then an error message will be returned from the recipient's ISP; this message will then be forwarded to the email address specified by the ReturnPath parameter. The ReturnPath parameter is never overwritten. This email address must be either individually verified with Amazon SES, or from a domain that has been verified with Amazon SES.

Public Property ReturnPathArn System.String Gets and sets the property ReturnPathArn.

This parameter is used only for sending authorization. It is the ARN of the identity that is associated with the sending authorization policy that permits you to use the email address specified in the ReturnPath parameter.

For example, if the owner of example.com (which has ARN arn:aws:ses:us-east-1:123456789012:identity/example.com) attaches a policy to it that authorizes you to use feedback@example.com, then you would specify the ReturnPathArn to be arn:aws:ses:us-east-1:123456789012:identity/example.com, and the ReturnPath to be feedback@example.com.

For more information about sending authorization, see the Amazon SES Developer Guide.

Public Property Source System.String Gets and sets the property Source.

The email address that is sending the email. This email address must be either individually verified with Amazon SES, or from a domain that has been verified with Amazon SES. For information about verifying identities, see the Amazon SES Developer Guide.

If you are sending on behalf of another user and have been permitted to do so by a sending authorization policy, then you must also specify the SourceArn parameter. For more information about sending authorization, see the Amazon SES Developer Guide.

In all cases, the email address must be 7-bit ASCII. If the text must contain any other characters, then you must use MIME encoded-word syntax (RFC 2047) instead of a literal string. MIME encoded-word syntax uses the following form: =?charset?encoding?encoded-text?=. For more information, see RFC 2047.

Public Property SourceArn System.String Gets and sets the property SourceArn.

This parameter is used only for sending authorization. It is the ARN of the identity that is associated with the sending authorization policy that permits you to send for the email address specified in the Source parameter.

For example, if the owner of example.com (which has ARN arn:aws:ses:us-east-1:123456789012:identity/example.com) attaches a policy to it that authorizes you to send from user@example.com, then you would specify the SourceArn to be arn:aws:ses:us-east-1:123456789012:identity/example.com, and the Source to be user@example.com.

For more information about sending authorization, see the Amazon SES Developer Guide.
