    Hi everyone,

    So after digging and research for hours about the right way to configure AWS Simple Email Service with cPanel, I finally found the solution for the most mistakes in the DNS & Records configurations

    First, to verify the domain. AWS is asking you to add TXT name & TXT Value

    Unfortunately people take everything copy and paste without understanding how cPanel records works. I'm not expert, I just created this thread to help people

    So this is exactly what AWS offering for records or in the developer guide

    You'll copy & paste ONLY

    _amazonses

    DO NOT COPY THE DOMAIN NAME !
    because cPanel is automatically identify it and I hope if cPanel guys correct me if I'm wrong here

    TXT Value, copy and paste without any problem

    FOR the DKIM, ONLY copy the NAME without your DOMAIN.COM

    AGAIN DO NOT COPY THE DOMAIN NAME

    In the value section, you copy & paste it in WHM or cPanel records but you'll need to add "." without quotes !

    AGAIN YOU'LL NEED TO ADD DOT in the MX value after amazonzones.com

    and here's another screenshot after everything done !

    Bingo !

    After 10 to 30 mins you'll receive successful message from AWS for the domain and DKIM .

    If you have SSH access you can test the configuration by those commands


    Code:
    dig TXT _amazonses.YOURDOMAIN.COM +short
    Code:
    dig CHNAME ####._domainkey.YOURDOMAIN +short
    Do not copy and paste MX records unless you wanted to use Email receiving service from AWS

    Actually, I wanted to use their service but without AWS S3 bucket, I'm still researching for using their service and also Webmail cPanel ! combined so I can be protected from outgoing and incoming spam :(

    Thank you guys ! .. I hope I helped you today after hundreds of threads here and on AWS forums about domain verification.
