Hello @HostinganID

Thank you for contacting cPanel!

You will need to complete different steps for setting up Amazon SES for incoming mail and for setting up outgoing mail.

To receive incoming mail in accounts managed at Amazon SES, your cPanel server will not have a lot of involvement. You will need to make sure you create MX records for your domains that point to Amazon SES. Amazon provides their own documentation for these on the following pages:

https://docs.aws.amazon.com/ses/latest/DeveloperGuide/receiving-email-setting-up.html

https://docs.aws.amazon.com/ses/latest/DeveloperGuide/receiving-email-mx-record.html

As for sending outgoing mail from your cPanel server via Amazon SES, you will need to configure Amazon SES as a smart host in your cPanel server's Exim configuration. We have published guides on configuring other smart host providers, which will likely be a useful reference for you:

For instructions that are more specifically suited to configuring Amazon SES as a smart host, I recommend you refer to the following guide:
