You can't beat the price to performance ratio

My experience overall has been extremely positive, the price makes it the best tool out there for sending a lot of emails. Emails land straight in inbox as they should, and the tools to help manage bounces and complaints included are top notch. I'd recommend Amazon SES to anyone who sends a lot of emails.

PROS

I like how easy it is to get started with SES as well as how cheap and reliable the service is.

CONS

The dashboard takes a bit of getting used to, but it's manageable

Reason for choosing Amazon SES

I chose Amazon SES over all competitors due to how many great reviews there were about it online, along with the cheap price.

Reasons for switching to Amazon SES

Emails didn't always hit inbox with mailchimp, and the price is overall more expensive.

Newbie starting out

So far there is nothing truly bad that I can state.

PROS

The pros are that there are a number of people that one can contact if they run into any issues. I appreciated the system that is built within AMAZON. If one person can not assist they have an immediate person to contact

CONS

The cons - that not just one person can assist you, if you get the wrong person you will be bouncing around till you do.

Amazon Simple Email Service - does what it says on the tin

I have used SES in multiple projects and it has proven itself to be a reliable service time and time again. The pricing is amazing and whilst you don't get all the bells and whistles other more fully featured services offer it does what it says on the tin. I've used it for multiple different projects utilising both API and SMTP connectivity and both have been solid.

PROS

The pricing is amazing for such a great service. The API is well documented and SDKs are available for the most popular languages. If you are integrating with legacy systems where you have no API access and require an MTA to be configured that i also supported. There's a generous free tier available for smaller projects as well (so long as you are using either EC2 or Lambda to integrate).

CONS

There's really not much to dislike about SES. A dashboard like Sendgrid provides would be a nice additional option but it's aimed at doing one thing and doing it well.

Reason for choosing Amazon SES

Pricing and reliabiity were the main drivers. There is also superb SDK provision which allowed us to easily integrate multiple different projects in different languages.
