Verified domain, SES authentication refuses emails.


Hi, I found myself in a weird situation were I have a verified domain, let's say but SES refuses emails despite the domain being verified.

  • The account is out of the sandbox.
  • I have successfully verified the domain.
  • I have successfully sent myself an email from the SES testing, the email came as follows:
  • from:
  • to: (my personal email)
  • date: Mar 23, 2022, 4:44 PM
  • subject: fdfdfdf
  • mailed-by:
  • signed-by:
  • security: Standard encryption (TLS)

However, when I send an email from my aplication on behalf of (from), I get this error msg: "Expected response code 250 but got code "554", with message "554 Message rejected: Email address is not verified. The following identities failed the check in region EU-CENTRAL-1: mktg , "

Note: is not the real mailbox and is not the real domain.
