Class SendEmailCommand

Composes an email message and immediately queues it for sending. In order to send email using the SendEmail operation, your message must meet the following requirements:

  • The message must be sent from a verified email address or domain. If you attempt to send email using a non-verified address or domain, the operation will result in an "Email address not verified" error.

  • If your account is still in the Amazon SES sandbox, you may only send to verified addresses or domains, or to email addresses associated with the Amazon SES Mailbox Simulator. For more information, see Verifying Email Addresses and Domains in the Amazon SES Developer Guide.

  • The maximum message size is 10 MB.

  • The message must include at least one recipient email address. The recipient address can be a To: address, a CC: address, or a BCC: address. If a recipient email address is invalid (that is, it is not in the format UserName@[SubDomain.]Domain.TopLevelDomain), the entire message will be rejected, even if the message contains other recipients that are valid.

  • The message may not include more than 50 recipients, across the To:, CC: and BCC: fields. If you need to send an email message to a larger audience, you can divide your recipient list into groups of 50 or fewer, and then call the SendEmail operation several times to send the message to each group.

For every message that you send, the total number of recipients (including each recipient in the To:, CC: and BCC: fields) is counted against the maximum number of emails you can send in a 24-hour period (your sending quota). For more information about sending quotas in Amazon SES, see Managing Your Amazon SES Sending Limits in the Amazon SES Developer Guide.


Use a bare-bones client and the command you need to make an API call.

import { SESClient, SendEmailCommand } from "@aws-sdk/client-ses"; // ES Modules import
// const { SESClient, SendEmailCommand } = require("@aws-sdk/client-ses"); // CommonJS import
const client = new SESClient(config);
const command = new SendEmailCommand(input);
const response = await client.send(command);
