How to verify a domain in Amazon SES?

Last update: March 18, 2024

Verifying domain in Amazon SES is the best choice. This is because it will increase the chances of moving out of AWS Sandbox when you request Amazon SES for sandbox removal. Also, it will let you use all email addresses as sender email addresses under that verified domain so that you don’t need to verify each email address individually.

Here are the following steps on how to verify your domain in Amazon SES.

1. Sign in to your AWS Management console and select Amazon Simple Email Service

Clicking on Amazon Simple Email Service
