Discoure with Amazon ses


I’ve installed discoure as a standalone app in my own vps. But later on I realised I have to configure my email server. Instead of using an local mail server, I chose AWS SES. So here’s what I did

After I got my ses setup on aws,
In app.yml I do

DISCOURSE_SMTP_ADDRESS: email-smtp.eu-west-1.amazonaws.com         
DISCOURSE_SMTP_PORT: 587                       
DISCOURSE_SMTP_PASSWORD: dffdgdfgdfgdfgdfgG 

But l not able to receive anything yet of course. How do I receive email of noreply@mydomain.com? which is the default mail for Discoure ?

Did you have a chance to review this? (There’s a section on Amazon SES.)
