Setup Amazon SES

Step 1: Use your AWS account email address and password to sign in to the AWS Management Console as the AWS account root user.

Step 2: On the IAM Dashboard page, choose your account name in the navigation bar, and then choose My Security Credentials.

Step 3: If you see a warning about accessing the security credentials for your AWS account, choose Continue to Security Credentials.

Step 4: Expand the Access keys (access key ID and secret access key) section.

Step 5: Choose your preferred action:

To create an access key
Choose Create New Access Key. Then choose Download Key File to save the access key ID and secret access key to a file on your computer. After you close the dialog box, you can't retrieve this secret access key again.

To disable an existing access key
Choose Make Inactive next to the access key that you are disabling. To reenable an inactive access key, choose Make Active.

To delete an existing access key
Before you delete an access key, make sure it's no longer in use. For more information, see Finding unused access keys in the IAM User Guide. You can't recover an access key after deleting it. To delete your access key, choose Delete next to the access key that you you want to delete.

If you previously signed in to the console with IAM user credentials, your browser might remember this preference and open your account-specific sign-in page. You cannot use the IAM user sign-in page to sign in with your AWS account root user credentials. If you see the IAM user sign-in page, choose Sign-in using root account credentials near the bottom of the page to return to the main sign-in page. From there, you can type your AWS account email address and password.
