Advanced AmazonSimpleEmailService configuration

If you need more control over the AmazonSimpleEmailService instance configuration you can create your own instance and refer to it from the URI:
The #client refers to a AmazonSimpleEmailService in the Registry.
For example if your Camel Application is running behind a firewall:
AWSCredentials awsCredentials = new BasicAWSCredentials("myAccessKey", "mySecretKey");
ClientConfiguration clientConfiguration = new ClientConfiguration();
AmazonSimpleEmailService client = new AmazonSimpleEmailServiceClient(awsCredentials, clientConfiguration);

registry.bind("client", client);


Maven users will need to add the following dependency to their pom.xml.
where ${camel-version} must be replaced by the actual version of Camel (2.8.4 or higher).
