chiliproject AWS SES(Simple Email Service) setup

Added by Lenny Ansir at 2013-02-25 11:50 am

Hi guys,
I recently installed chiliproject on my AWS instance. It’s all installed and most of it works fine but I have a problem with setting up the email server. I am using amazon SES and I have entered the relevant smtp settings into the configuration.yml file but it is still not sending any email. Settings are below:

     delivery_method: :smtp
       enable_starttls_auto: true
       port: 25
       domain: "" 
       authentication: :plain
       user_name: "myawssesusername" 
       password: "myawssespassword" 

Can you guys help?
Thanks in advance Lenny

Hi Lenny,

I have never worked with SES, but in general, your configuration looks about right with one exception: The domain field should contain the hostname of the server ChiliProject is running on. It will be send as part of the SMTP HELO/EHLO. Some more insistent servers expect a correct hostname there.

Also, the server might support only a different authentication mechanism than :plain, e.g. :login. You might need to consult the documentation of SES to determine the correct value here. Please also see the Email_Delivery for some additional example for email configuration.
