Amazon SES alternatives

Amazon SES Alternatives: Don’t just send email. Deliver it.

Whether you need to send transactional email or email marketing messages, it’s not enough to just create email campaigns. You need to make sure your delivery rates are high for them to have an effect. Using an email delivery service means you can focus on your messages and not your email server, and there are plenty of Amazon SES alternatives. Mailgun’s emphasis on email deliverability lets you maintain that focus in ways that Amazon Simple Email Service (SES) can’t match.

Make sending emails truly simple

Despite its name, Amazon SES isn’t all that simple. Many users end up adding other tools like Sendy to make the Amazon SES interface easier to work with. The email service from Mailgun makes it truly easy to send emails. Use our our web services or SMTP API to integrate email into your application. All you need are a few configuration settings to get set up and connect to the Mailgun SMTP server. Need more help? You have a support team on call with Mailgun, with a dedicated technical account manager helping you create the email infrastructure you need and providing support. For even more assistance, you can use our Managed Deliverability Services to help develop your email marketing strategy and monitor the results.

Know whether your emails are getting results

Don’t lose track of your email messages after hitting “Send.” Mailgun includes email analytics to track metrics like unique opens, unique clicks, and more. Amazon SES won’t tell you that. Want to set up your own analytics? You can access your log files through our APIs. Amazon SES doesn’t hold on to this information for you.

Handle incoming email

Email communication needs to go both ways. Inbound email routing from Mailgun offers powerful parsing and passes JSON to your webhooks for your customized processing using Python, Ruby, PHP, or other tools your developers know. That makes Mailgun easy to use as a transactional email service responding to customer messages. With Amazon SES, you’ll need to write Amazon Lambdas to do custom processing, and you’ll pay extra for that Amazon compute time.
