It mostly could be due to two reasons

  1. You user is not authorized in Identity and Access Management (IAM) to send email to SES.
  2. Alternately your AWS account may not be signed up for the Simple Email Service, but I doubt that is the problem.

    You can add a group to IAM that is allowed just the sendEmail action with the following policy:

      "Statement": [
          "Action": [
          "Effect": "Allow",
          "Resource": [
