Amazon Web Services just announced a new bulk email offering, called Amazon Simple Email Service (Amazon SES). The Amazon cloud-based service is aimed to help developers and businesses who don’t want to build a in-house email product but want to call upon a powerful service to send large volumes of emails.

The Amazon SES email service if offered for free to everyone, but Amazon will charge fees for the number of emails sent plus data transfers. Pricing for Amazon SES is $0.10 per thousand email messages sent. But, a customer can send 2,000 email messages for free each day when these emails originally come from the Amazon EC2 platform.

Amazon SES offers a built-in feedback loop, which includes notifications of bounce backs, failed and successful delivery attempts, and spam complaints.  I wonder how they are going to keep spammers out of this system if they offer 2000 email messages a day.  Do they just shut them off from a free account?

Has anyone tried out this system yet?  Please let me know what you think about it
