Handling AWS Bounce Notifications from Simple Email Service
About a year ago, I had to code a Rails application to handle bounce notifications from AWS SES. Amazon Simple Email Service is ridiculously easy to configure and use in a Rails application. As the instructions at the GitHub gem page explain, all you need to do is add the aws-ses Rails gem and create a configuration file called config/initializers/amazon_ses.rb that contains your Amazon credentials (soft-coded of course). But, if you need your application to handle bounce, complaint, or delivery notifications, things get a little more complicated.
