Amazon SES Notifications Through Amazon SNS

You can use Amazon Simple Notification Service (Amazon SNS) to receive notifications about bounces, complaints, and deliveries for emails that you send through Amazon SES. Amazon SNS notifications are in JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) format, which enables you to process them programmatically.

If you configure Amazon SNS notifications for both bounces and complaints, you can disable receiving bounce and complaint notifications by email entirely. For information about receiving bounce and complaint notifications by email, see Amazon SES Notifications Through Email. Delivery notifications are available only through Amazon SNS.


For several important points about notifications, see Monitoring Using Amazon SES Notifications.
