I am working on ubuntu servers on AWS and wants to use SES functionality of AWS to send splunk email alerts, is this possible?

I'd say "sure, it's possible -- if you're willing to write some code to do it". The default Splunk "send email" action uses plain old SMTP under the covers. You could modify

Amazon now offers SMTP Server with their AWS SES service. We got it working now. Here is how you do it: go to amazon and set the SMTP incl. one user up. (see Amazon doc)
In Splunk: Mail host: (choose the one amazon tells you) email-smtp.us-east-1.amazonaws.com:465 Security: Enable SSL UserName: amazon crypto username Pass: abc Link hostname: your external IP of the splunkserver send emails as: the verfied Email adress
That setup worked for us

Update to the answer of Philipp Schneider:
The Link hostname is NOT your external IP of the splunkserver, but the internal IP! Because if you're enable the PDF Server for Linux to schedule PDF reports, you will not be able to generate PDF's with your external IP!
