Pros: Amazon SES is a fast and very cheap transnational Email service. Amazon SES can send upto 14 email per second. Amazon SES allows you to send email in which from address can be your domain. It is so simple to set up and use. Amazon SES also provided detailed stats of your daily email. You get 62,000 free mail each month if you send mails using EC2 servers.

Cons: Amazon SES is a great email service but you need to make sure you don't exceed your bounce rate beyond 10% otherwise you will loose your ability to use this service.

Overall: We use Amazon SES to send email notifications and verification links of our website. Amazon SES is reliable and fast delivery email service.

Pros: If you need to send emails to individual users, SES makes it so simple. After verification, they handle disabling bounced or spam complaint emails for you and provide appropriate testing for when emails do bounce or complain. Pricing is so cheap and your first 1million emails are free.

Cons: Throttling is kind of confusing. You need to request a throttle increase and even then you can run into throttling errors.

Overall: Postmark was so expensive and we were looking for a cheaper solution.

Pros: If you are on AWS, forget about setting up your email relay service and just go with SES.

It's a really simple service (it's just like using a common SMTP service) but nowadays sending email has become tricky cause of SPAM, and AWS makes sure their infrastructure and set up reduce the chance of your email becoming SPAM itself.

Cons: Nothing really, but maybe having a bit more control and insight could have helped a couple times.

Overall: I set up SMTP servers/services a few times starting many years ago when it was easy, so I know exactly how it works, but nowadays I'd go straight with SES to avoid the pain of keeping my infrastructure out of blacklists and hackers hands.

Pros: SES is very affordable for teams of all sizes

Cons: Once, the SES service was hijacked by external intruders and used to send spam. Amazon currently has no way to rotate keys / passwords, and so this creates an extra burden for users
