SES requires a verified from
email address, but it doesn't require verifying the to
email address. Once you verify the from email address, you can send email to any address. You can also verify a whole domain, such that you can send email from any address with that
We use SES heavily. It's a fantastic, minimalist, service for very cost effective email delivery. If you need bells and whistles (such as reporting, like Brent mentioned) SES leaves that burden to your application, so in these cases higher-level services, like Mandrill, can become a better fit.
