Part 5: Configure Bounce and Complaint Notifications in Amazon SES

To receive bounce and complaint notifications from Amazon SES, you must configure notifications in the Amazon SES console. This procedure describes how to set up these notifications.

  1. Sign in to the AWS Management Console and open the Amazon SES console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/ses/.

  2. In the column on the left, choose Email Addresses.

  3. Check the box next to the email address that should receive bounce and complaint notifications, and then choose View Details.

  4. Under Notifications, choose Edit Configuration.

  5. For Bounces and Notifications, choose the Amazon SNS topic you created in Part 1: Create a Topic in Amazon Simple Notification Service. Choose Save Config.

  6. Repeat steps 3–5 for each email address that should receive bounce or complaint notifications.

  7. Open the Amazon SQS console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/sqs/.

  8. Right-click the queue you created in Part 2: Create a Queue in Amazon Simple Queue Service, and then choose Purge Queue.

    Note

    This step is required. When you configure notifications, Amazon SES sends a confirmation notification that is picked up by Amazon SNS. These confirmations cannot be parsed by the Lambda function, and may cause the Lambda function to fail.

  9. Proceed to Part 6: Create an AWS Lambda Function.
