Here is a free Amazon SES GUI for Windows to send test mails, upload templates, and add key-value pairs. It is an open source tool that only takes your AWS credentials and gives you a simple UI to send test emails from your account with a specified email template. While using it, you will not have to use the AWS CLI or AWS Console to do this.
There are instances where you want to test emails with correct templates and the process is not that straightforward. But thanks to the open source I have mentioned here, you can do that in a few clicks. You only need to give it AWS credentials and it will take care of the rest. The GUI is very simple and a bit classic but in the later updates I hope there will be some improvements.
