Add Amazon SES Delivery Server
If you're not having an AWS account, create one. It's free to get started. Amazon SES will only ever charge you if you send more than 62,000 emails in a given month ($0.10 for every 1,000 emails thereafter).

3) Enter mailpixels as the user name and choose Programmatic access for the access type.
4) Click the Next: Permissions button at the bottom. You'll be directed to Set Permissions page.
5) Click Attach existing policies directly option and a table will appear below.
6) Scroll or search the table until you see AmazonSESFullAccess and click the checkbox to the left of the row to select it. Make sure you've checked the right row.

Both Access key ID and Secret access key are required to create a Delivery server.
Add Delivery Server
1) Click on Delivery tab > Delivery Servers > Add Delivery Server.
2) Choose Amazon SES as Delivery Server type.
3) Name the Delivery Server. This name is just for your reference.
4) Enter the Access key and Secret access key that you've just got under Connection & credentials configuration section.
5) Choose your preferred AWS Region. AWS regions are data centers in different geographical locations that you can use to build applications.
Which region you should choose depends on a few factors. If you've already been using SES in a particular region, you can choose to use that region. Or, if you have an application using other AWS services in a region, you choose to use the same region. Otherwise, choosing the "US East (N. Virginia)" is probably best.
Move out of Sandbox
Amazon places all new SES accounts into Sandbox mode in order to prevent fraud and abuse.
Getting your account out of sandbox mode is easy.
