There are a number of commercial and open source software packages that support sending email via SMTP. Here are some examples:
List management software
You can configure any such SMTP-enabled software to send email through the Amazon SES SMTP interface. For instructions on how to configure SMTP for a particular software package, see the documentation for that software.
The following procedure shows how to set up Amazon SES sending in JIRA, a popular issue-tracking solution. With this configuration, JIRA can notify users via email whenever there is a change in the status of a software issue.
To Configure JIRA to Send Email Using Amazon SES
Using your web browser, login to JIRA with administrator credentials.
In the browser window, click Administration.
On the System menu, click Mail.
On the Mail administration page, click Mail Servers.
Click Configure new SMTP mail server.
On the Add SMTP Mail Server form, fill in the following fields:
Name—A descriptive name for this server.
From address—The address from which email will be sent. You will need to verify this email address with Amazon SES before you can send from it. For more information about verification, see Verifying Email Addresses and Domains in Amazon SES.
Email prefix—A string that JIRA prepends to each subject line prior to sending.
SMTP Port—25, 587, or 2587 (to connect using STARTTLS), or 465 or 2465 (to connect using TLS Wrapper).
TLS—Select this check box.
Username—Your SMTP username.
Password—Your SMTP password.
Settings for TLS Wrapper are shown below.
Click Test Connection. If the test email that JIRA sends through Amazon SES arrives successfully, then your configuration is complete.
