What is MailTracking?

MailTracking is the most powerful and reliable email tracking service that exists today. In short - MailTracking tells you when email you sent gets read / re-opened / forwarded and so much more

How do I send a tracked email?

There are two ways you can send tracked emails:

  1. Simply add:   to the end of your recipients email address (they won't see this)
  2. Install our ActiveTracker plugin to add the tracking for you.

Testing? If you send tracked emails to yourself, your anti-spam filters may block them (people don't usually write to themselves) - so we recommend you test by sending to other people.

What will you tell me about the tracked emails I send?

MailTracking will endeavour to provide the following in your tracking reports:

  • Date and time opened
  • Location of recipient (per their ISP city /town)
  • Map of location (available on paid subscriptions)
  • Recipients IP address
  • Apparent email address of opening (if available)
  • Referrer details (ie; if accessed via web mail etc)
  • URL clicks
  • How long the email was read for
  • How many times your email was opened
  • If your email was forwarded, or opened on a different computer
All messages sent via MailTracking benefit from our SPF compliant and Sender-ID compliant mail servers. This confirms safe transmission of your messages, and also enables us to report delivery status to you (including: bounce-backs, delays and success notifications). Delivery information is listed in your Personal Tracking Page.
