Amazon Mailer not working on 5.0.3

Your software
My Mautic version is: 5.0.3
My PHP version is: 8.1
My Database type and version is: MySQL 5.7.23-23

My problem is: I can’t seem to correctly configure mautic to send emails with SES. I’ve read all the other topics here and don’t see the resolution to my issue.

I got the following error when trying to configure SES:

Unable to send emails via “ses” as the bridge is not installed; try running “composer require symfony/amazon-mailer”

I ran that command and it successfully added the mailer. But it seems the current version of the amazon mailer requires php 8.2 which mautic doesn’t support currently afaik. I just get the same error from mautic when trying to add my ses details.

Do I need to try and downgrade the amazon mailer for it to work? Is there some kind of a workaround?
