I have installed Sendy on a server that I operate. While the installation process seems to have worked, I continue to get "Unable to get your SES quota from Amazon" as an error message in Sendy.
I have reviewed other posts regarding this issue, and so far I have done the following:
Verified that my server's time is synced to NTP. The following is my output from ntpq -p
+mx-a.smith.is 188.8.131.52 3 u 69 128 377 80.885 -0.278 2.463
-triangle.kansas 184.108.40.206 2 u 5 128 365 73.386 -3.568 3.965
*name1.glorb.com 220.127.116.11 2 u 116 128 377 39.633 -1.671 0.892
+pool-test.ntp.o 127.67.113.92 2 u 67 128 367 81.395 2.537 1.316
I believe that that data confirms that I am less than a few seconds out of sync from various NTP servers; often it is even less than a second out of sync.
What other things do I need to check in order to get the SES quota?
Sync your server clock with NTP using the following SSH command for Linux:
sudo /usr/sbin/ntpdate 0.north-america.pool.ntp.org 1.north-america.pool.ntp.org 2.north-america.pool.ntp.org 3.north-america.pool.ntp.org
Yeah I figured it out eventually. Just for posterity's sake, I was mistakenly trying to use my SES SMTP credentials rather than the IAM credentials. Once I plugged in the correct credentials, everything was ok.
