I can't comment about SES.  Don't use it.  Didn't mention it in my 
previous message.

Though, since you brought it up, the fact that Amazon imposes any limits 
on their SES customers (sending quotas), has a initial sandbox that allows 
a miniscule 200 msgs a day, and requires customers to demonstrate the need 
to increase those limits suggests they are paying more than lip-service to 
fighting spam.

They also have a published and current AUP:

A working abuse team:
abuse AT amazonaws DOT com

and an online form where you can report EC2 abusers:

Suggesting AWS doesn't care seems...well...inaccurate.
