How many emails does an instance send?

I’m working on setting up an instance using AWS’ SES as an email service. Before I go too far - is that a real bad idea for some reason or is it generally interchangeable with the other services?

One of the steps for setting up SES is submitting a request to AWS support asking to be removed from the sandbox and cleared to send emails to non-verified email addresses. This comes with a rate increase request. I know emails will get sent for new users and forgotten passwords so I can estimate the rate to be pretty low. Does it send more than that? Anyone have rough data or estimates for emails per day per user?

My instance has a bit over a 100 users and I use Mailgun.

This is super-helpful - thank you! Looks like it is lower than I expected but I’m okay with that :smiley:
