To help protect our customers from fraud and abuse and to help you establish your trustworthiness to ISPs and email recipients, we do not immediately grant unlimited Amazon SES usage to new users. New users are initially placed in the Amazon SES sandbox. In the sandbox, you have full access to the Amazon SES API so you can test and evaluate the service; however, the following restrictions are in effect:
Emails can be sent only from verified email addresses or domains.
Emails can be sent only to the Amazon SES mailbox simulator and to verified email addresses or domains.
You can send a maximum of 200 messages per 24-hour period.
You can send a maximum of one message per second.
To request production access to Amazon SES
Go to the AWS Management Console and log in with the email address and password you used when you signed up for Amazon SES.
You must sign in as the AWS account holder, not as an AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) user. Otherwise, you will see "Permission Denied."
Go to http://aws.amazon.com/ses/fullaccessrequest/ and open an SES Production Access case.
We will respond to the case after reviewing your request. Please allow one business day for processing.
The following are three ways to determine whether you have received production access:
The correspondence in your SES Production Access Support Center case indicates that you have been granted production access.
You can successfully use Amazon SES to send an email message from your verified email address to an unverified address that you own. If you receive a MessageRejected error instead, stating that your email address is not verified, then you are still in the sandbox.
The Amazon SES console shows that your sending quota is higher than 200 messages per 24-hour period. To learn more, see Monitoring Your Amazon SES Sending Limits.
If you are granted production access, you no longer have to verify "To" addresses or domains; however, you must still verify any additional "From" or "Return-Path" addresses or domains. Over time, Amazon SES will gradually increase your sending limits, or you can open an SES Sending Quota Increase case in Support Center if the gradual increase does not meet your needs. For more information, see Managing Your Amazon SES Sending Limits.
