Check your authentication with EmailSmart
(for free!)

The only reliable way to check your authentication status is by sending an email from your ESP. Sign up for the Email Smart authentication checker below, and follow the instructions to send them an email. 


* *PLEASE NOTE: this tool is currently under development, so if you have any issues with it, wait a day and try again (if you continue to have trouble, you can contact their support at [email protected]). They're updating and tweaking it in real-time, and were gracious enough to let us use it for no cost. 


***If you use CONVERTKIT, your SPF may show as a soft-fail with this tool, even if you have a verified sending domain (due to Convertkit's VSD subdomain process).  Other ESPs with a subdomain authentication method may show the same -- like Kajabi, Drip, Kartra, Klaviyo, and Flodesk. That doesn't mean there's an issue for Google and Yahoo's new rules, but interestingly enough, it's Microsoft who has the highest standards for SPF. 

→ In the Deliverability Unboxed Workshop Series, I'll show you how to level-up your SPF coverage to pass even the tightest checks.

"Cheryl makes hard tech things easy...


I’m kinda tech-adverse... it's one of those necessary evils that comes with growing an online business, but it’s admittedly my least favourite part. 

I honestly don’t know where I’d be without her guidance.

Have we met? I'm Cheryl Rerick

I’m an email marketing strategist, automation engineer (aka super tech-nerd), and creator of the Automate and Chill™ method. I'm high-key obsessed with helping you make more passive sales, free up hours each week, and create a life-proof business… all with your emails. 


If you’ve ever met me, you know that I really truly care about the real-life humans on my email list – and I also love our bubble of an online community of course creators, coaches, and creative entrepreneurs ( ← y’all are my people).


As an EmailSmart Certified Partner, when I heard about the upcoming changes to email deliverability and how they’ll affect… well, everyone... I knew I had to sound the alarm to my village of internet friends. 


In November, I started looking at the emails I get in my own inbox from lists I’m on, and I noticed OVER 80% were not in compliance with the new rules. Even from some of the biggest names in the email marketing space (ahh the stars… they’re just like you!


That’s when I realized I needed to move quickly to prepare as many people as possible. Because I know, for most of us, email marketing quite literally puts food on the table.


I reached out to my good friends Adrian and Evan at EmailSmart— the real OG's of deliverability— and they were immediately onboard to help...
