    Relay cPanel mail through Amazon SES?

    I've been attempting to relay my emails through Amazon SES the software I'm using doesn't support AWS yet, so I decided I'd try to make exim do it instead, following this guide:

    http://docs.aws.amazon.com/ses/lates...uide/exim.html

    It seems it just doesn't send emails at all now.

    This is what I get in the exim_mainlog

    Code:
    2013-09-22 00:42:53 Start queue run: pid=59846
    2013-09-22 00:42:53 1VNbKo-000FKG-VJ localhost [::1] Connection refused
    2013-09-22 00:42:53 1VNbKo-000FKG-VJ localhost [127.0.0.1] Connection refused
    2013-09-22 00:42:53 1VNbKo-000FKG-VJ == <snip>@gmail.com < <snip>@gmail.com> R=send_via_ses T=ses_smtp defer (111): Connection refused
    2013-09-22 00:42:53 End queue run: pid=59846
    I'm a bit stuck on what to do next, since neither Amazon nor cPanel are willing to provide support for this.

    Thanks in advance,
    Reeckz

    You can try to use ping to attempt to connect to the ip/hostname.

    Code:
    route_list = * email-smtp.us-east-1.amazonaws.com
    do not forget to keep the asterisk, You can try without the asterisk, if with does not work.

    Also consider the expenses. Normally a cPanel server sends 1000 emails / hour. This might mean 20 000 emails and more every day. In terms of money can cost you additional $2-3/day to use SES for sending emails.

    You'll have a hard time setting it up automatically because Amazon SES requires you to validate every single email address and domain name using DNS and accepting an email.

    It might be a bit hard to do something like that.

    Oh forgot to mention, this installation of cPanel / WHM is just for my personal sites & forums.

    Why you need them Amazon integration with cPanel/WHM ?
    You can just set the SMTP access and send as many emails as you like (or the limit they have set for you).

    Since I'd like to protect the sites I run. They're all run through cloudflare but since you can still find the origin server through email headers, I'd like to make all outgoing emails routed through AWS SES.
