Synopsis

  verify-email-identity
--email-address <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--email-address (string)

The email address to be verified.

--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.

--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.

Examples

To verify an email address with Amazon SES

The following example uses the verify-email-identity command to verify an email address:

aws ses verify-email-identity --email-address user@example.com

Before you can send an email using Amazon SES, you must verify the address or domain that you are sending the email from to prove that you own it. If you do not have production access yet, you also need to verify any email addresses that you send emails to except for email addresses provided by the Amazon SES mailbox simulator.

After verify-email-identity is called, the email address will receive a verification email. The user must click on the link in the email to complete the verification process.

For more information, see Verifying Email Addresses in Amazon SES in the Amazon Simple Email Service Developer Guide.
