Unable to get SES quota from Amazon

    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     3 u   69  128  377   80.885   -0.278   2.463
     -triangle.kansas     2 u    5  128  365   73.386   -3.568   3.965
     *      2 u  116  128  377   39.633   -1.671   0.892
     +pool-test.ntp.o    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.

    • Ensured that my IAM credential has the AmazonSESFullAccess policy.
    • Double checked my credentials, and also created new IAM credentials to ensure that it wasn't a freak issue with the first account.

    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

    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.
