Using Amazon SES, you can track the invalid email and mark them as Bounced. Amazon will track the delivery status of the email and if it failed to reach the recipient’s mail server, it will be marked as Bounced in your audience status so that you can exclude them in the future campaign.
*Tutorial: How to Configure Amazon SES with FluentCRM
1. Go to Amazon SNS console.
2. Choose Create topic.
3. Select the Type Standard enter a name for the Topic, click on Create topic button..
4. From the Topic details of the topic that you created, navigate to Subscriptions, and then choose Create subscription.
5. The topic will be pre-selected, in the Protocol select http or https (based on your server’s SSL status).
In Endpoint, you need to give your FluentCRM’s endpoint, grab the URL from your FluentCRM dashboard -> Settings -> SMTP/Email Service Settings section.
After putting the URL in the Endpoint field, check Enable raw message delivery and click on Create subscription button. You should see a success screen like below:

The link to SES console in step 1 under “Configure Amazon SES to send bounce information to FluentCRM #” (anchor text “Amazon SES console”) should be https://console.aws.amazon.com/ses/home
You currently have it as: https://console.aws.amazon.com/sns/home
Hello, we sent a letter to all members a few days ago, but in the dashboard, we only saw the number of single-digit open letters less than 10 per day.
In the past few days, I have also discovered that the test letter cannot be received after sending it.
I don’t know if there is a limit to the delivery volume per day, or where is it not set successfully?
le menu a changé et il n’est plus possible d’utiliser http ou https.
Amazon propose à la plce Amazon SQS.
Est-ce un problème de choisir cela?
I am stuck at Configuring Amazon SES to send bounce information to FluentCRM. When I go to Amazon SES console, my navigation pane doesn’t have a Domain option. It only has:
Text messaging (SMS)
I don’t know how to progress.
you’re probably stuck at Amazon SNS option, the domain option is available at SES.
I am a new user and i am setting up the smtp. However, when I start doing this ‘ Configure Amazon SES to send bounce information to FluentCRM ’
I can’t find my domain in that section. Wish you could give some advice on it. Since I have been stuck in this part for few days………
Hi Smith, you’re probably stuck at Amazon SNS. Please go to Amazon SES and the domain section will appear.
HI, I have done all the settings properly.
But in the end, I still can’t use Amazon SES….
Fail to open dir: No such file or directory
Any possible solution from your team? It would be great if I can get your help soon…..
Thanks for your help

When creating a topic, I have to choose between two types: FIFO and Standards. Which should I select?
Feeling very competent with this thorough explaination!
Is there a way to configure a List-Unsubscribe header with AmazonSES?
If a list subscriber deletes their email address or incorrectly updates their email address. How long should it take for a bounce to be recognized after an email has been sent to that subscriber?
I added a fake email address contact to a list. I wanted to see what happens after I tried to send a campaign which included the contact with the fake email address.
So far nothing. The contact is not flagged as bounced.
What is the process for bounces? When should the bounce ‘Label’ appear on the contacts records in FCRM?
BTW I have correctly configured the Amazon SES bounce handler (with the recent updated instructions) i.e. to add notification the registered Amazon SES email address (in addition to the domain).
Hi Scott, contact will be marked as bounced only when Amazon SES marks it as a hard bounce. You can check it from your Amazon SES console.
Thanks for getting back to me.
Where should I look within the Amazon SES console?
Go to your Amazon SES dashboard and select the ’email addresses’ tab under ’email sending’. you’ll find all the email addresses.
What the best practice for setting up the Fluent CRM ?
Should it be done on a subdomain, such as “fluent.domain.com” or can it be on the main domain “domain.com” Pros? Cons?
I am mainly interested in two things:
1. Not having the FROM say: I do not want to see
From: Using PHPMailer 6.4.1 Why does the mail headers say: FROM: John Doe Using PHPMailer 6.4.1 (https://github.com/PHPMailer/PHPMailer) Can this part which is saying “Using PHPMailer 6.4.1 ” be removed?
For setting the “FROM” address, I read an article below that confused me:
Choosing a MAIL FROM domain
The subdomain you use for your MAIL FROM domain has to meet the following requirements:
The MAIL FROM domain has to be a subdomain of the verified identity (email address or domain) that you send email from. For example, mail.example.com is a valid MAIL FROM domain for the domain example.com.
The MAIL FROM domain shouldn’t be a domain that you send email from. If you have to use the MAIL FROM domain in a From address, either disable email feedback forwarding and receive your bounces through Amazon SNS notifications, or ensure that your MAIL FROM domain is not the destination for feedback forwarding. To determine the destination of email forwarding feedback, see Email feedback forwarding destination.
The MAIL FROM domain shouldn’t be a domain that you use to receive email.
“The MAIL FROM domain shouldn’t be a domain that you use to receive email.”
If I am receiving email at email@example.com
Is this suggesting I need to setup a 2nd email box at firstname.lastname@example.org ?
Why does it say I need to set this up on a subdomain ?
Processing bounces, I am reading this article and getting really confused. It says that it has to be on a subdomain? Really lost right now…
Hi George, I’m not sure about your query. It would be best if you submit a support ticket: https://wpmanageninja.com/support-tickets/
Thanks for this thorough explanation!
We run Fluent CRM on a multisite using a folder structure (TLD/de/ and TLD/en/). How would the setup differ for such a scenario.
I am stuck now at the point of SNS Topic Configuration, since each multisite provides a different Amazon SES Bounce Handler URL. However, in the AWS SNS Topic Configuration I can only choose one of them.
Hey Rainer, it would be best if you submit a support ticket: https://wpmanageninja.com/support-tickets/
If I have 5 websites : should I create 1 topic with 5 subscriptions ??
Or 5 topics with 1 subscription for each one ?
Hi Pierre, 1 topic with 5 subscription should work. Let us know if there’s any issue.
There is no “subscription” option on the screen I’m on in the “create topic” screen . What am I doing wrong?
Perhaps you’re in the SES console and not the SNS console?
