I needed to understand email deliverability in much more detail as my clients keep asking me to help them – and I didn’t understand enough to solve their issues myself. I’ve also been avoiding sorting out a long list of email accounts, all set up differently – and wanted to get my email in order. The course told me everything I needed to know, and more. I’ll be referring back to it to remind myself how to do things. Highly recommended, and if I can master email and understand DNS – anyone can! Thanks Amr for putting this course together.
