I am working on a project where I deal with email bounces using Amazon SES.
They offer SNS to notify me of events and right now I am getting email notifications. It is manual work to filter all my emails for specific json strings and I was wondering if theres a way I can automate the process.
Can I can set up a web service (WCF or webAPI or asmx) so SNS can communicate directly to my own web service ?

Web Service can be implemented to GET notifications, search the specific string and send alert to relevant resource. Note that a stand alone or console or web application can implement the same functionality instead of a
web service, where as Web service can be reused by number of clients.
Amazon SNS provides a API, which can be utilised to interact with their Web Service to get notifications. Refer http://docs.aws.amazon.com/sns/latest/APIReference/Welcome.html
Choosing the technology for Web services:- WCF is configuration based rather than convention based and it is not originally designed for RESTFul (Representational State ) services.
ASP.NET Web API is light-weight framework to implement HTTP based RESTful services.

WCF had the capibilities to run RESTful webservices since its first release (.Net Framework 3.0). It was just a little bit difficult to achieve it, but as of the second release (.Net Framework 3.5) it had all what's required to easily implement a RESTful
