Our LMS platform allows our clients to send email communications like Marketing emails, Transactional Emails, Support emails, etc. to students. By default, all the emails go from learnyst.net domain. However, we provide email white-labelling option to our clients (for all the plans).
For you to utilize this feature need to have your own AWS SES account. https://aws.amazon.com/ses/.
And you also need to have a production access from AWS SES team to move out of the sandbox zone.(Sandbox is only for Testing purpose)
Choosing the Right AWS Region for Production Access
Amazon SES is available in several AWS Regions around the world. In each Region, AWS maintains multiple Availability Zones. These Availability Zones are physically isolated from each other, but are united by private, low-latency, high-throughput, and highly redundant network connections. These Availability Zones enable us to provide very high levels of availability and redundancy, while also minimizing latency.
For additional information on AWS regions, please refer to this article.
To request your account be removed from the Amazon SES sandbox using the AWS Management Console
Open the Amazon SES console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/ses/.
In the navigation panel, choose Account dashboard.
In the warning box at the top of the console that says, "Your Amazon SES account is in the sandbox", on the right-hand side, choose Request production access.
- In the account details modal, select either the Marketing or Transactional radio button that best describes the majority of mail you'll be sending.
Marketing email - Sent on a one-to-many basis to a targeted list of prospects or customers containing marketing and promotional content such as to make a purchase, download information, etc.
Transactional email - Sent on a one-to-one basis unique to each recipient usually triggered by a user action such as a website purchase, a password reset request, etc.
In Website URL, enter the URL of your website to help us better understand the kind of content you plan on sending.
- In Use case description, explain how you plan to use Amazon SES to send email. To help us process your request, you should answer the following questions:
How do you plan to build or acquire your mailing list?
How do you plan to handle bounces and complaints?
How can recipients opt out of receiving email from you?
How did you choose the sending rate or sending quota that you specified in this request?
In Additional contacts, tell us where you want to receive communications about your account. This can be a comma-separated list of up to 4 email addresses.
In Preferred contact language, choose whether you want to receive communications in English or Japanese.
In Acknowledgement, check the box that you agree to only send email to individuals who've explicitly requested it and confirm that you have a process in place for handling bounce and complaint notifications.
Choose the Submit request button - a banner will display to confirm your request was submitted and is currently under review.
Once you submit a review of your account details, you can’t edit your details until the review is complete. The AWS Support team provides an initial response to your request within 24 hours.
In order to prevent AWS systems from being used to send unsolicited or malicious content, they have to consider each request carefully. If they were able to do so, they will grant your request within this 24-hour period. However, if they need to obtain additional information from you, it might take longer to resolve your request. AWS might not be able to grant your request if your use case doesn't align with AWS policies.
- Proceed with additional steps only after receiving confirmation of AWS production access from the AWS Team.
- In case of AWS Team rejecting production access, reach out to them for clarification on the reasons. Adjust accordingly and request access after addressing their concerns.
