[ aws . ses ]



Given an identity (an email address or a domain), enables or disables whether Amazon SES forwards bounce and complaint notifications as email. Feedback forwarding can only be disabled when Amazon Simple Notification Service (Amazon SNS) topics are specified for both bounces and complaints.


Feedback forwarding does not apply to delivery notifications. Delivery notifications are only available through Amazon SNS.

You can execute this operation no more than once per second.

For more information about using notifications with Amazon SES, see the Amazon SES Developer Guide .

See ‘aws help’ for descriptions of global parameters.


--identity <value>
--forwarding-enabled | --no-forwarding-enabled
[--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--identity (string)

The identity for which to set bounce and complaint notification forwarding. Examples: user@example.com , example.com .

--forwarding-enabled | --no-forwarding-enabled (boolean)

Sets whether Amazon SES will forward bounce and complaint notifications as email. true specifies that Amazon SES will forward bounce and complaint notifications as email, in addition to any Amazon SNS topic publishing otherwise specified. false specifies that Amazon SES will publish bounce and complaint notifications only through Amazon SNS. This value can only be set to false when Amazon SNS topics are set for both Bounce and Complaint notification types.

--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml (string) Reads arguments from the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, those values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally. This may not be specified along with --cli-input-yaml.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. Similarly, if provided yaml-input it will print a sample input YAML that can be used with --cli-input-yaml. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

See ‘aws help’ for descriptions of global parameters.


To enable or disable bounce and complaint email feedback forwarding for an Amazon SES verified identity

The following example uses the set-identity-feedback-forwarding-enabled command to enable a verified email address to receive bounce and complaint notifications by email:

aws ses set-identity-feedback-forwarding-enabled --identity user@example.com --forwarding-enabled

You are required to receive bounce and complaint notifications via either Amazon SNS or email feedback forwarding, so you can only disable email feedback forwarding if you select an Amazon SNS topic for both bounce and complaint notifications.
