How can I create SMTP credentials to use with Amazon SES? How can I authenticate to Amazon SES using SMTP credentials?
I want to create Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) credentials that I can use with Amazon Simple Email Service (Amazon SES) SMTP endpoints. Then, I want to authenticate to Amazon SES using the SMTP credentials.
Open the Amazon SES console. Important: The IAM user or role that you use to create the SMTP credentials must have permissions for iam:ListUsers, iam:CreateUser, iam:CreateAccessKey, and iam:PutUserPolicy.
Because SMTP credentials are Regional, review the AWS Region selector in the navigation bar to confirm that you're in the correct Region.
From the navigation pane, under Email Sending, choose SMTP Settings.
Choose Create My SMTP Credentials.
For IAM User Name, you can accept the default name, or enter a new name.
Choose Download Credentials. This is the only time that you can download the SMTP credentials for this user.
