They ask me this: "1. What type of configuration or setup have you implemented to prevent spam from originating from your EC2 resource?"


I don't understand what they mean..

Hello,


This space is related to the Amazon Frustration-Free Setup platform, not AWS EC2, so you might find better answers in the AWS Developer Forums.

According to this Knowledge Center page, when requesting approval to open port 25 on an EC2 instance, you must provide:

  • A clear and detailed use case for sending email from your EC2 instance or NAT Gateway.
  • A statement outlining your plan for assuring that your account isn't implicated in sending unwanted emails.
  • The Region for your EC2 instance or NAT Gateway.

If you're intending to send emails, perhaps AWS Simple Email Service would be simpler: https://aws.amazon.com/ses/
