Verifying Email Addresses and Domains in Amazon SES

Before you can send an email using Amazon SES, you must verify each email address (or the domain of the email address) that you will use as a "From", "Source", "Sender", or "Return-Path" address to prove that you own it. If your account is still in the Amazon SES sandbox, you also need to verify any email addresses that you send emails to except for email addresses provided by the Amazon SES mailbox simulator. You can verify an email address or domain by using the Amazon SES console or by using the Amazon SES API.

Email address and domain verification status for each AWS region is separate. For more information, see the verification procedures in the following sections.
