Solve: AWS Port 25 Blocked | Port 25 Throttling Issue (Inbound)

Published : February 25, 2020

Now for more than one instance, many customers have complained about an issue about Amazon AWS that their port 25 is blocked. In AWS EC2 instances, many customers are getting frequent timeout errors. Now by default, Amazon EC2 restricts traffic on port 25 for all EC2 instances. But there is a way you can request this restriction to be removed.

Nowadays mail delivery problems with Amazon SES in increasing frequently and two major reasons for the same are, Port 25 Throttling and IP Blacklisting.

Amazon AWS Port 25 Throttling

As a method of spam prevention, amazon restricts the amount of mails that can be sent from SES. On one hand it is an important practice, but on the other hand it becomes a pain for some good and serious senders.

As a solution, every ESP must follow a dedicated Warm Plan. Pepipost strongly suggest a proper Warm-Up plan if you are a veteran in Email Sending. When shifting ESPs or starting with new IP, warm-up is suggested for better Email Delivery and to reduce the chances of you landing up in any of the blacklist.

IP Blacklisting

It has been noted many times that various IPs of Amazon SES are blacklisted. Specially IPs on Amazon EC2 are found blacklisted in Spamhaus and similar lists. Now in those cases it is highly recommended that you take quick actions and switch to some other IP.

Though Amazon SES provides additional IPs on request but we strongly recommend you choosing your Email Service Provider which has proper IP reputation.
