AWS Identity and Access Management
AWS SES + Postfix + DKIM
May 28, 2013
For the last year or so I’ve been using SendGrid to relay all emails coming from my server. I don’t send a lot of emails through the system; it’s mostly notifications from the blog and a few related automated messages. While I like paid version of SendGrid (which I’ve used at work), the free version is lacking a few features and includes an unsubscribe link on emails which is really annoying. I decided to mix things up a bit and give Amazon Simple Email Service (AWS SES) a shot. Along with SES I wanted to configure all my mail to be signed with DKIM, on my server. I hope the internet continues to allow the anonymity it currently does, but that comes with a price (because people are abusive bastards), and that price is trust. DKIM is like trust, for email!
