Amazon SES instead of Gmail for company email

My company has decided to move away from G Suite to reduce costs, so I’m in charge of providing alternatives.

They are accustomed to using Gmail, and don’t handle many emails per days (probably around 50 emails received and 50 sent, in 4 mail accounts).

As I don’t have much experience with setting up server emails, I thought of setting up an email like Amazon SES, and setup an email client like Thunderbird of configure their Gmail accounts to send and receive via Amazon SES.

For what I read Amazon SES is more used in apps, to mass mail. But maybe it can be used as standard mail anyway.

Is there a downside to this? Is there something that will change that I should mention them?

Note that Amazon WorkMail is not an option, since they carry around the same cost than G Suite.
