Sending a Message to an Email Address in Amazon SES

The following example demonstrates how to use the AWS SDK for Ruby to send a message to an Amazon SES email address.

require 'aws-sdk-ses' # v2: require 'aws-sdk' # Replace sender@example.com with your "From" address. # This address must be verified with Amazon SES. sender = 'sender@example.com' # Replace recipient@example.com with a "To" address. If your account # is still in the sandbox, this address must be verified. recipient = 'recipient@example.com' # Specify a configuration set. To use a configuration # set, uncomment the next line and line 74. # configsetname = "ConfigSet" # The subject line for the email. subject = 'Amazon SES test (AWS SDK for Ruby)' # The HTML body of the email. htmlbody = '<h1>Amazon SES test (AWS SDK for Ruby)</h1>'\ '<p>This email was sent with <a href="https://aws.amazon.com/ses/">'\ 'Amazon SES</a> using the <a href="https://aws.amazon.com/sdk-for-ruby/">'\ 'AWS SDK for Ruby</a>.' # The email body for recipients with non-HTML email clients. textbody = 'This email was sent with Amazon SES using the AWS SDK for Ruby.' # Specify the text encoding scheme. encoding = 'UTF-8' # Create a new SES client in the us-west-2 region. # Replace us-west-2 with the AWS Region you're using for Amazon SES. ses = Aws::SES::Client.new(region: 'us-west-2') # Try to send the email. begin # Provide the contents of the email. ses.send_email( destination: { to_addresses: [ recipient ] }, message: { body: { html: { charset: encoding, data: htmlbody }, text: { charset: encoding, data: textbody } }, subject: { charset: encoding, data: subject } }, source: sender, # Uncomment the following line to use a configuration set. # configuration_set_name: configsetname, ) puts 'Email sent to ' + recipient # If something goes wrong, display an error message. rescue Aws::SES::Errors::ServiceError => error puts "Email not sent. Error message: #{error}" end
