AWS::SES is a Ruby library for Amazon's Simple Email Service's REST API (

Getting started

To get started you need to require 'aws/ses':

% irb -rubygems
irb(main):001:0> require 'aws/ses'
# => true

Before you can do anything, you must establish a connection using A basic connection would look something like this:

ses =
  :access_key_id     => 'abc', 
  :secret_access_key => '123'

The minimum connection options that you must specify are your access key id and your secret access key.


AWS::SES::Addresses provides for:

  • Listing verified e-mail addresses

  • Adding new e-mail addresses to verify

  • Deleting verified e-mail addresses

Contributing to aws-ses

  • Check out the latest master to make sure the feature hasn't been implemented or the bug hasn't been fixed yet

  • Check out the issue tracker to make sure someone already hasn't requested it and/or contributed it

  • Fork the project

  • Start a feature/bugfix branch

  • Commit and push until you are happy with your contribution

  • Make sure to add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.

  • Please try not to mess with the Rakefile, version, or history. If you want to have your own version, or is otherwise necessary, that is fine, but please isolate to its own commit so I can cherry-pick around it.
