Amazon's SES is very reliable but the 14-day tracking period in the SES console isn't cutting it for me. I'd like to implement their event publishing using 'configurations sets'.
From their docs, "To capture link click events, Amazon SES replaces the links in your emails with links to a server operated by SES. This immediately redirects the recipient to his or her intended destination." And, "To capture open events, SES adds a 1 pixel by 1 pixel transparent GIF image in each email sent through SES which includes a unique file name for each email, and is hosted on a server operated by SES; when the image is downloaded, SES can tell exactly which message was opened and by whom."
I don't want to abandon ACY tracking, I just want to start using AWS CloudWatch too. It's my instinct this won't break ACY. Has anyone out there been doing this?
