Polling the queue in Amazon SQS

0 votes

This the scenario. I want to send a bunch of notification emails to customers. And am planning to use my web app(s) and other applications to "send" emails. The plan is to have a method, that generates a chunk of XML representing the email to be sent and adds them to the Amazon SQS queue. I then need a way of checking the queue and physically sending out the email messages. 

But what would be the best way to poll the queue?

One way is you could create a windows service that retrieves any messages from the queue every 10 minutes and then dispatches them. For this, you can try 'postmark' app.

Another way is maybe you can use SES. But it is very inexpensive compared to other similar services or building other systems.
