Mail service can handle 1,000 emails every 24 hours
Amazon will launch a bulk e-mail service aimed at businesses and developers.
The Amazon Simple Email Service (SES) reportedly features a free usage tier, after which customers will pay a fee for the number of emails sent plus data transfer.
The price for the offering will be 10 cents per thousand email messages sent.
The new email service will save businesses the effort of building and maintaining their own email-sending solution and paying for expensive email services, said Amazon Web Services vice-president Adam Selipsky.
The e-commerce company said its SES will also provide content-filtering to scan a business’ outgoing e-mail messages in accordance with internet service provider requirements.
Newly verified production accounts can send up to 1,000 emails every 24 hours. This quota currently can grow to 10,000 daily messages within three days and up to 1,000,000 daily messages within a couple of weeks, the company stated on its blog.
