Sending Email Using the AWS SDK for Go

The following sample code is a complete solution for sending email through Amazon SES using the AWS SDK for Go. This sample code assumes that you have installed the AWS SDK for Go, and that you have created a shared credentials file. For more information about creating a shared credentials file, see Create a Shared Credentials File.

package main import ( "fmt" "" "" "" "" ) 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 = "" // Replace us-west-2 with the AWS Region you're using for Amazon SES. AwsRegion = "us-west-2" // The subject line for the email. Subject = "AWS SES Test (SDK for Go)" // The HTML body for the email. HtmlBody = "<h1>SES Test Email (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 and specify an AWS Region. sess, err := session.NewSession(&aws.Config{ Region:aws.String(AwsRegion)}, ) // Create an SES client in the 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), } // 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!") fmt.Println(result) }
