[ aws . ses ]



Enables or disables Easy DKIM signing of email sent from an identity. If Easy DKIM signing is enabled for a domain, then Amazon SES uses DKIM to sign all email that it sends from addresses on that domain. If Easy DKIM signing is enabled for an email address, then Amazon SES uses DKIM to sign all email it sends from that address.


For email addresses (for example, ), you can only enable DKIM signing if the corresponding domain (in this case, ) has been set up to use Easy DKIM.

You can enable DKIM signing for an identity at any time after you start the verification process for the identity, even if the verification process isn't complete.

You can execute this operation no more than once per second.

For more information about Easy DKIM signing, go to the Amazon SES Developer Guide .

--identity <value>
--dkim-enabled | --no-dkim-enabled
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--identity (string)

The identity for which DKIM signing should be enabled or disabled.

--dkim-enabled | --no-dkim-enabled (boolean)

Sets whether DKIM signing is enabled for an identity. Set to true to enable DKIM signing for this identity; false to disable it.

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


To enable or disable Easy DKIM for an Amazon SES verified identity

The following example uses the set-identity-dkim-enabled command to disable DKIM for a verified email address:

aws ses set-identity-dkim-enabled --identity --no-dkim-enabled
