People Don’t Hate Getting Emails,

They Hate Getting BAD Emails.

But that won’t be a problem for you after hitting the button below…


Something big is going on in Google land. If you’re emailing your peeps using a “From Address” (like through Mailchimp, Active Campagin or any other email service provider – you’ve got a MASSIVE problem but it’s easy to fix. Let me explain:


Gmail updated it’s Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting & Conformance (DMARC) policy.

What’s DMARC?

DMARC allows domains to tell mail servers to reject messages using that domain in the “From address”, if the message did not originate from that domain’s own mail server.  In plain English: Email service providers can’t send “from” GMail addresses anymore(Yahoo! & already have the same policy). = Good = Bad

***Note: If you use Google for Work with a private domain email address (like you WILL NOT be effected *** 

What does that mean for you?

  • You MUST create a  “From” address from your private domain: like  or ASAP! (See instructions below)
  •  Check Autoresponders – Update the “From” field if needed
  • Check the all “Sender” addresses on confirmation forms, broadcast emails, etc.

 Gmail bans email service providers like Mailchimp from using "From" address anymore

3 reasons why this is good thing…

 Using email address for your business is:

  1. Unprofessional
  2. Shows you have no confidence in your business idea – If you know this business is going to success you’d buy a private domain and set up a proper email address
  3. Gets you more comfortable with tech part of your business

How to create a private domain email address:

Setting up a private (or customize) domain email address is super easy.
