Successfully integrated Interspire Email Marketer with Amazon-SES
When Amazon announced their SES service, I rejoiced. It will enable my clients to send a large number of bulk emails from a single server in a short time. But then I was worried that I will need to hack here and there to integrate the sending scripts and list management softwares with Amazon-SES. Thanks to Amazon's foresight, I was able to to make the system mail server Postfix work seemlessly with Amazon-SES without touching the list management software codebase, making sure smooth upgrade to future interspire versions.
IEM is one of my favourite list management software. It's a bit pricey, but worth every penny. A client was aiming for 50000bulk mails per hour and I was asked to integrate Interspire with amazon SES. Instead of hacking the Interspire core, I hacked the Postfix installation. Now with one single server running on Amazon-EC2 small instance, the client is able to mail his customers in a snap.
