EmailContent - Amazon Simple Email Service


An object that defines the entire content of the email, including the message headers and the body content. You can create a simple email message, in which you specify the subject and the text and HTML versions of the message body. You can also create raw messages, in which you specify a complete MIME-formatted message. Raw messages can include attachments and custom headers.



The raw email message. The message has to meet the following criteria:

  • The message has to contain a header and a body, separated by one blank line.

  • All of the required header fields must be present in the message.

  • Each part of a multipart MIME message must be formatted properly.

  • If you include attachments, they must be in a file format that the Amazon SES API v2 supports.

  • The entire message must be Base64 encoded.

  • If any of the MIME parts in your message contain content that is outside of the 7-bit ASCII character range, you should encode that content to ensure that recipients' email clients render the message properly.

  • The length of any single line of text in the message can't exceed 1,000 characters. This restriction is defined in RFC 5321.
