Amazon SES vs Nodemailer: What are the differences?
Developers describe Amazon SES as "Bulk and transactional email-sending service". Amazon SES eliminates the complexity and expense of building an in-house email solution or licensing, installing, and operating a third-party email service. The service integrates with other AWS services, making it easy to send emails from applications being hosted on services such as Amazon EC2. On the other hand, Nodemailer is detailed as "A module for Node.js applications to allow email sending". It is a single module with zero dependencies – code is easily auditable. The email delivery is Secure using TLS/STARTTLS. You can use HTML content, as well as plain text alternative.
Amazon SES and Nodemailer can be primarily classified as "Transactional Email" tools.
