Follow these steps:
- Provide your AWS Security Credentials "admin/config/media/awssdk", it is must, so that this module can
send api request to your AWS account. For more details about AWS Credentials
read through http://docs.aws.amazon.com/general/latest/gr/aws-security-credentials.html.
Get your access key here https://portal.aws.amazon.com/gp/aws/securityCredentials.
- Amazon SES requires that you verify your email address or domain, to confirm that you own it and to prevent others from using it. so you must verify your sender id. For this go
to "admin/config/aws-settings/aws-verify-ses-sender-id". If you don't have Production
Access to Amazon SES, you must verify reciepient's mail addresses.

- Meaningful feedback, i.e. who has read mail, who spammed it, who have not received yet.
- Integration with https://drupal.org/project/simplenews module.
