Amazon SES Summer Reader Best Practices

As of April 5, 2016, we have implemented a new email verification process to safeguard our customers/servers. This process will no doubt be very new to most of our customers but hopefully, not without familiarity as most web-based software applications are turning to a web verification process to vet out harmful email addresses to their system.

Important Note: This verification email process is only applicable to those libraries who are using Evanced's Amazon SES and have a least one of the email features enabled in your Classic Summer Reader site enabled (ex. "Confirmation Email Enabled") in the email setup area.

Here is how you can check to see if you are using our Amazon email service.

  1. System Maintenance > Email Setup > Look for the email address extension. If you have the email address extension as demonstrated below, then any patron email sent from the system, will be under the new email guidelines.
  2. In addition to having the sending email name extension visible, you also need to have at least one of the email service options enabled as well.
  3. NOTE: If you do not include any text in the "Sending Email Name" field on the Email Setup page (ex. noreply) your email service will not function.

Below are a list of best practices that we highly recommend implementing so as to ensure a successful problem-free Summer Reading 2016 season and beyond.
