Amazon SES vs Postal: What are the differences?

Amazon SES: 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; Postal: Open source mail delivery platform, alternative to Mailgun or Sendgrid. Postal is a complete and fully featured mail server for use by websites & web servers. Think Sendgrid, Mailgun or Postmark but open source and ready for you to run on your own servers. Postal was developed by aTech Media to serve its own mail processing requirements and we have since decided that it should be released as an open source project for the community.

Amazon SES and Postal belong to "Transactional Email" category of the tech stack.

Postal is an open source tool with 9.02K GitHub stars and 533 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Postal's open source repository on GitHub.

        Our internal emails (such as exception notifications) are sent via Amazon SES, since it's cheaper than using Sendgrid. We also use Amazon SES as a fallback in case we have deliverability issues with Sendgrid.

        Some e-mail communication needs a independent provider, for these purposes we use SES.

        Good enough, could get a bit more TLC from AWS to beef up compared to the competition
