I have installed the Discourse bitnami AMI from AWS Marketplace a couple of days ago and I can't get emails to work.
I'm using SES for email. I created an IAM user for SES, registered my Discourse domain, updated the DNS record in Route53, and can successfully send a test email from the SES console.
My discourse configuration has the credentials for my SES IAM user and it's configured to point to SES on port
587(I followed this guide) but whenever I try a test email in Discourse under
Email I get this message:
There was a problem sending the test email. Please double-check your mail settings, verify that your host is not blocking mail connections, and try again.
I have spent the last day looking all over the net for solutions but nothing has worked. Anyone else try a setup like this? Or have suggestions?
