Amazon Simple Email Service (Amazon SES) is a highly scalable and cost-effective bulk and transactional email-sending service for businesses and developers. Subscription is quick and is on pay-as-you-go basis. You can read more about Amazon SES here.
MXace connects with Amazon SES via API. So you need to setup an Amazon SES account before you can start using it with MXace.
Once your SES account is created, you will have to generate your IAM credentials i.e. your unique Access Key ID and Secret Access Key and enter those credentials in the MXace Sending servers panel.
Also you will have to verify your sending and bounce email addresses with SES to send emails through it and you will have to request your sending quota with SES.
This Guide assumes you already have an Amazon account with SES privileges. See Signing up for AWS to get started.

Time value = 5, and
Time unit = minute accordingly
