I am running a custom PHP app on an Ubuntu 18.04 server created with AWS Bitnami Lightsail.
I am trying to integrate Amazon SES with Sendmail's SMTP functionality.
This page explains how to edit the php.ini file to activate Sendmail but goes no further:
This page explains how to configure SMTP settings for Sendmail in SES but it's not clear if the recommended settings match bitnami defaults.
How can I apply the above guide for using SES and Sendmail with SMTP with my bitnami server?
In Step 1, do I replace "root" with bitnami?
In Step 6, do I replace Port 25 with Port 465 for the RELAY_MAILER_ARGS variable?
Here's what I have done so far:
telnet email-smtp.us-east-1.amazonaws.com 465
But I am stumped as to which settings to use to configure SMTP. Thank you for your help!
