  • This is my advice for using SES along side your new Charming Full email server.

HmailServer does not currently have a catchall relay smtp function like Postfix or Sendmail in Linux.

You can set up Roundcube to send ALL messages via SES with the following settings.

Edit C:\inetpub\wwwroot\webmail\config\config.inc.php

edit the line $config[‘smtp_server’]  to the following. Remember Semi-colons

If you are NOT using US-EAST Nvirginia than change the server name to whatever SES settings tells you to use. Contact support@charmingcloud.net for any assistance.

$config[‘smtp_server’] = ‘tls://email-smtp.us-east-1.amazonaws.com:587’;

Just below add these lines, change the CAPS for your

$config[‘smtp_user’] = ‘YOUR-SES-USERNAME-RANDOM-CHARS’;
$config[‘smtp_pass’] = ‘YOUR-SES-PASSWORD_THAT-is REALLY-LONG’;

  • You can setup each Outlook with SES SMTP settings

  • You should additionally ask AWS to allow your Instance to send emails. As it is now it is limited to just a few messages an hour or less. They won’t tell you. However you can ask them for both reverse DNS and allowing you to send emails in the same form:

I checked out backup the db,

I didn’t try it but found this:

However, you might be interested in periodic snapshots of the volume, snapshots are incremental, so you don’t pay for the full 70 GB every time.
