Setting Up an Amazon SES Cross-Account Identity Notification Configuration

Before you set up notifications, you need to know the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the identity that the identity owner has authorized you to use, and for which you want to configure notifications. For example, the ARN for identity user@example.com would look similar to arn:aws:ses:us-east-1:123456789012:identity/user@example.com. If the identity owner has not given you the identity's ARN, refer them to the procedure in Providing the Delegate Sender with the Identity Information.

The easiest way to configure notifications is to use the Amazon SES console. If you want to use the Amazon SES API instead, you can use the SetIdentityNotificationTopic API and pass the identity's ARN as the Identity parameter. This action is explained in the Amazon Simple Email Service API Reference. The following procedure shows you how to set up notifications by using the Amazon SES console.

To set up Amazon SNS bounce, complaint, and/or delivery notifications by using the Amazon SES console

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

  2. In the left navigation pane, choose Cross-Account Notifications.

  3. Choose Add Notification Config.

  4. In the Edit Notification Configuration dialog box, enter the ARN of the identity that the identity owner has authorized you to use, and for which you want to configure notifications. The identity cannot belong to the account that is currently logged in. If you want to configure notifications for your own identities, see Configuring Amazon SNS Notifications for Amazon SES.

  5. Specify the existing Amazon SNS topics that you want to use for bounces, complaints, and/or deliveries, or create a new Amazon SNS topic.

    Important

    The Amazon SNS topics that you use for Amazon SES notifications must be within the same AWS region in which you are using Amazon SES.

    You can choose to publish bounce, complaint, and delivery notifications to the same Amazon SNS topic or to different Amazon SNS topics. If you want to use an Amazon SNS topic that you do not own, then the owner of that topic must configure an Amazon SNS access policy that allows your account to call the SNS:Publish action on their topic. For information about how to control access to your Amazon SNS topic through the use of IAM policies, see Managing Access to Your Amazon SNS Topics.

  6. Choose Save Config to save your notification configuration. Changes might take a few minutes to take effect.

    After you have configured your settings, you will start receiving bounce, complaint, and/or delivery notifications to your Amazon SNS topic(s). These notifications will follow the structure described in Amazon SNS Notification Contents for Amazon SES.
