Sendy and Amazon SES - SpamAssassin report


Well-known member

I test Amazon SES with Sendy to see if it could work for me. I do not use yet the available Xenforo Sendy addon, because I want to see first, how this works out without the XF Sendy addon.

This here is a very good video on how to set this up, by the way:

Everything is done now to properly use Sendy with Amazon SES. I have verified all my domains with Amazon SES and I am no longer in sandbox mode.

As a next step I created a campaign in Sendy (only words, no links) and sent a test email to my test account at

I got a score of 9.4/10, which is already very good. But with my own server (without Sendy/Amazon SES), I got a 10/10 in the past.

These are the errors I get with Sendy/Amazon SES:

The biggest one in red is a blacklist entry.

There is probably nothing I can do about it as long as I do not use a dedicated Amazon IP address only for me for 25 USD/month.

But the others in orange make me think. Especially this one:
-0.249HEADER_FROM_DIFFERENT_DOMAINSFrom and EnvelopeFrom 2nd level mail domains are different

How can I improve on these?

I think you should check that with AWS.
All because it's one of their apps that you choose to use.
That is go into your account over there and submit a ticket.
Do the same here because i'm sure @Chris D knows a thing or two and might be able to help you out privately.
