AWS::SES::EmailIdentity MailFromAttributes

Used to enable or disable the custom Mail-From domain configuration for an email identity.


To declare this entity in your Amazon CloudFormation template, use the following syntax:


{ "BehaviorOnMxFailure" : String, "MailFromDomain" : String }


BehaviorOnMxFailure: String MailFromDomain: String



The action to take if the required MX record isn't found when you send an email. When you set this value to USE_DEFAULT_VALUE, the mail is sent using as the MAIL FROM domain. When you set this value to REJECT_MESSAGE, the Amazon SES API v2 returns a MailFromDomainNotVerified error, and doesn't attempt to deliver the email.

These behaviors are taken when the custom MAIL FROM domain configuration is in the Pending, Failed, and TemporaryFailure states.
