How to send email to non-verified email address using AWS SES

+2 votes

I am developing PHP application that, after sign-up, sends an activation mail to the registered email address using Amazon SES (Simple Email Service).

But SES is only sending emails to verified users.

How can I send the activation link to any non-verified email address, too?

While running in sandbox mode you can only send to verified users - once your account has been activated, you can send to anyone.

Getting out of the sandbox:

How much time it will take to accept the request
What request are you talking about? If it is for verified email then that will depend on your service provider.
I am not sure what you mean by 'how long it takes to accept a request?'. But if you want to know how long will it take for the mail to reach receiver, usually the message is received immediately and at other times there might be a short delay.

To know more refer this link - https://docs.aws.amazon.com/ses/latest/DeveloperGuide/delivery-problems.html

These are the restrictions in SES sandbox :

You can only send mail to the Amazon SES mailbox simulator and to verified email addresses and domains. You can only send mail from verified email addresses and domains. You can send a maximum of 200 messages per 24-hour period. Amazon SES can accept a maximum of one message from your account per second.

You have to move out of sandbox to send email to non-verified email address using AWS SES.
