When you sign up to MuxEmail the email address used during that sign-up will already be verified, so you can begin sending immediately. But this only allows you to send 2000 emails and most of you will not prefer to send emails from the email address you used to sign up all the time.

The reason we ask you to verify your domain in Amazon SES is -

  1. To confirm that you own the domain you are verifying and to prevent others from using it.
  2. When you verify an entire domain, you are verifying all email addresses from that domain. This will allow you to send emails from any email address using the verified domain.
  3. Verifying an entire domain also helps with an increased rate of deliverability.

a. You can follow the steps as show in this video to verify your domain in your Amazon SES account -

Note : You only need to copy and paste the "value" text in your DNS record. Moreover in the hostname of you need to enter "@" (leave it blank if specified by your DNS service provider)

b. Or you can also follow these written instructions to verify your domain in your Amazon SES account.

  1. Log in to you Amazon Web Services(AWS) account and navigate to the Amazon SES dashboard
  2. On the top right, make sure the right SES region is selected
  3. Click on the Verify a New Domain button
  4. Enter your domain name (example.com)
  5. Tick Generate DKIM Settings
  6. Click Verify This Domain. Now you should see a screen with all of the DKIM DNS entries listed.
  7. You now have to copy these records and enter them in your domain's DNS settings page (where you purchased your website domain name)
  8. After you've done this, wait for 5-10 minutes and check the verification status in the Amazon SES dashboard.

That's it. Your domain is now verified.

Final Step: Apply for Amazon SES development access

Note: For increased deliverability, you can also set up custom domains. (optional)
