Can't use Amazon Web Services' (AWS) smtp server in Qlik Sense on the Cloud.
In SaaS editions of Qlik Sense, admins will need to setup a mail server so that users can share charts via email or receive alerts. It is however not possible to use Amazon Web Services' smtp server. Our system requires authentication using an email address, while in AWS the username is in a different format.
when entering the username, our system does not accept it because it's not a valid email address (error: "the email address is invalid")
when entering an email address, the sending of the email fails because Amazon Web Services does not accept that.

This is a current product limitation.
Workaround: Use a smtp server that accepts the username being sent as an email address.
