Amazon SES 554 Message rejected: Email address is not verified

I’m using Amazon SES. I have problem getting email verification when a user signed up. I had verify my own email address used for admin account, hence I can get it. That’s strange, how does verify address work in SES? I have to verify to be able to send out emails?

No idea but Amazon SES has very strict rules. Check their documentation.

I think I have to verify but how do I receive verification from amazon?

There should be a step by step tutorial for SES in my opinion as SES is one of the most cheap and efficient solutions for email.

Assuming you’re on US-East-1, you need to go here:

And add your “reply-by” email address.


For anyone having the same issue…
To email address should also be verified if your account is in sandbox mode.
