Can't Get Amazon SES working with vBulletin

I'm trying to use Amazon SES for vBulletin after having some complaints about users not getting activation emails, notifications, etc.. In Email Options, I filled in these options:

Using Port 425. I tried both SSL and TLS, and when I do an email diagnostic I get the following message:
"The mailing function returned an error while trying to send the mail."

What else do I need to do to get this working? -f parameter isn't enabled, I've left it as no. Could that cause any issues?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Prior to 4.2.3 you cannot do it, SES requires you to use the 'tls://' stream rather than 'tcp://' but this isnt available in older vbulletin versions.

In 4.2.3 a hook (mail_smtp_send_before) was added - which you can set [& use] to update the value

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

In 4.2.4 the code has been updated slightly again to provide a new 'TLS Native' option that will use the tls stream value.

4.2.4 (Beta 1) is due out before the end of the year.

Thanks for your reply.

I'm using 4.2.2 now. If I upgrade to 4.2.3, and I update the hook using the code you provided, will it then work?
