How to send emails with AWS Simple Email Service(SES) using Google Apps Script

You can use Google Apps Script to send emails through Amazon SES (Simple Email Service) by following these steps:

  1. Set up a verified sending domain in Amazon SES. You’ll need to do this so that you can send emails from an address in your domain. For more information, see the Amazon SES documentation on setting up a verified sending domain.
  2. Set up a new IAM (Identity and Access Management) user in AWS (Amazon Web Services) with the necessary permissions to send emails through Amazon SES. You’ll need the AWS access keys for this user in order to use the AWS SDK for JavaScript in the next step. For more information, see the Amazon SES documentation on creating an IAM user.
  3. Install the AWS SDK for JavaScript in your Google Apps Script project. You can do this by going to the “Resources > Libraries” menu in the script editor and adding the library with the following ID: 1B7FSrk5Zi6L1rSxxTDgDEUsPzlukDsi4KGuTMorsTQHhGBzBkMun4iDF.
  4. Use the AWS SDK for JavaScript to send emails through Amazon SES. You can do this by calling the sendEmail function of the SES object, passing in the necessary parameters such as the sender and recipient addresses, the subject and body of the email, and any attachments. Here’s an example of how you could do this:
// Load the AWS SDK for JavaScript
var AWS = require('aws-sdk');

// Set the region where your Amazon SES sending domain is located
AWS.config.region = 'us-east-1';

// Set the AWS access keys for the IAM user you created
AWS.config.accessKeyId = 'ACCESS_KEY_ID';
AWS.config.secretAccessKey = 'SECRET_ACCESS_KEY';

// Create a new Amazon SES object
var ses = new AWS.SES();

// Set the sender and recipient addresses
var from = 'sender@example.com';
var to = 'recipient@example.com';

// Set the subject and body of the email
var subject = 'Test Email from Amazon SES';
var body = 'This is a test email sent through Amazon SES';

// Send the email
ses.sendEmail({
  Source: from,
  Destination: {
    ToAddresses: [to]
  },
  Message: {
    Subject: {
      Data: subject
    },
    Body: {
      Text: {
        Data: body
      }
    }
  }
}, function(err, data) {
  if (err) {
    // An error occurred
    console.error(err.message);
  } else {
    // The email was sent successfully
    console.log('Email sent!');
  }
});
