Examples of Notifications for Amazon SES Email Receiving

This section provides an example of a notification that alerts you that an action was taken, and a notification from an SNS action, which contains the contents of the email.

Alert Notification

This section contains an example of an Amazon SNS notification that can be triggered by an S3 action. Notifications triggered by Lambda actions, bounce actions, stop actions, and Amazon WorkMail actions are similar. Although the notification contains information about the email, it does not contain the content of the email itself.
