Send emails through AWS SES using the instance role?

Has anyone been able to get Sentry to send emails through SES using the AWS API instead of SMTP? I.e. such that it could make use of the instance role instead of hard-coded credentials?

Well just messed around with it a little bit, turned out to be easy enough: pip install django-amazon-ses and then in your config.yml:

mail.backend: 'django_amazon_ses.EmailBackend'
