AWS SMTP Not Working

If your aws smtp is not working and you use cpanel, that’s how I fixed it:

Login to your WHM, go to Tweak Settings>All>Restrict outgoing SMTP to root, Exim, and mailman (FKA SMTP Tweak) Switch it from «On» to «Off»

That works for all external SMTPs and my aws smtp works now very great.

If you use Post Smtp for wordpress the test mails won’t work, I think aws ses marks it as spam.
