How to Install EasyMail7 on Amazon EC2

If you plan to send a high volume of emails and/or if your messages contain attachments that slow down the sending speed on your local computer or server, you can launch an Amazon EC2 instance, install EasyMail7 on the instance and send emails using EasyMail7 on the instance.

The advantages of using EasyMail7 on an Amazon EC2 instance are:

1 the sending speed increases considerably since all data is located within the same datacenter on Amazon;

2 you can send 62,000 emails for free per month if you are also using the Amazon SES API or SMTP server;

3 you can use online subscription forms provided by EasyMail7 to collect leads in real time;

4 you can handle the unsubscribe process online.

Follow the steps below to launch an Amazon EC2 instance and install EasyMail7 on it.

This tutorial assumes that you already have an account with Amazon.

Step 1. Launch EC2 Instance.

Go to the Amazon website at http://aws.amazon.com/ and login.

After login, go to “Services” and click on “EC2 (Virtual Servers in the Cloud)”.


Click “Launch Instance”.

Launch AWS EC2 instance

Choose an Amazon Machine Image (AMI). To use EasyMail7, you need a Microsoft Windows Server.

Choose AMI

Choose an instance type depending on the size of your email list and sending frequency.

A t2.micro instance suits well for a tiny list with up to 10,000 subscribers.

A t2.small instance is for a small list with 50,000 recipients or less.

Choose a t2.medium instance if your list contains 50,000 – 200,000 subscribers. But if you send very often, choose a m3.medium instance.

If you have a huge subscriber base (500,000+ recipients) and you plan to email them frequently, choose an instance with a High Network Performance, for example, m3.large.

Click “Next: Configure Instance Details”.

Choose instance type

At this step choose “Enable” in the “Auto-assign Public IP” field.

By requesting a public IP address from Amazon’s public IP address pool you’ll make your instance reachable from the Internet. In most cases, the public IP address is associated with the instance until it’s stopped or terminated, after which it’s no longer available for you to use. If you require a persistent public IP address that you can associate and disassociate at will, use an Elastic IP address (EIP) instead. You can allocate your own EIP, and associate it to your instance after launch.

You can leave other settings at this step by default.

Click “Next: Add Storage”.

Configure EC2 instance

At this step you can increase the storage device volume if you have a big email list and plan to send email campaigns frequently. If you don’t, skip this step and go further.

Click “Next: Tag Instance”.

Add instance storage

Enter a name for your instance into the “Value” field and click “Next: Configure Security Group”.

Tag instance

Check “Create a new security group” box and enter a security group name and description.

Add the rules for the ports 50888 and 50999 as shown on the image below to allow access to your instance from your local computer.

Click “Review and Launch”.

Create security group

Review your instance configuration and click “Launch”.

Launch EC2 instance

Now you have to create the keys that will allow you to connect to your EC2 instance securely.

Select “Create a new key pair”, enter a key pair name and click “Download Key Pair”.

Save the .pem file to a folder and keep it safe.

Then click “Launch Instances”.

Create key pair

Click “View Instances”.

View instances

Wait until the instance state says “running” and click “Connect”.

Connect to instance

Download remote desktop and get your password to be able to connect to your EC2 instance from a local computer.

Connect to instance

Choose your .pem file on the disk and then click “Decrypt Password”.

Decrypt password

Copy your public IP, user name and password and save them to a safe place.

Click “Close”.

Copy password

Step 2. Install EasyMail7 on EC2.

Start your Remote Desktop (.rdp file) and login to your EC2 instance with your password.

Connect to EC2 instance

Copy the EasyMail7 setup file to your instance and run the setup. Install EasyMail7 on EC2 just like you do it on your local computer.

For your convenience, you can install both EasyMail7 Server and EasyMail7 Client on the EC2 instance. You can configure EasyMail7 and enter all your data using the EasyMail7 Client on the instance.

When everything is setup, open the EasyMail7 Client on your local computer and connect to the EasyMail7 Server on EC2.

On the login form enter the following information:

EasyMail7 Server: your public IP
Port: 50888
User name: your user name
Password: your password

If you login for the first time, enter the default user name Admin and default password Admin. You will be asked to change your password after login.

Login to EasyMail on EC2 instance

If you have a web site, you can add a DNS record with your public IP to the site.

Add DNS record

After you add a DNS record, you can use the DNS record name instead of your public IP address to login to the EasyMail7 Server on your EC2 instance.
