Email tracker or mail tracking system is mostly used by companies, organizations, and bloggers to check the open rates, mail delivery status, tracking email opens, and many other data curation.
Most of them use third-party services like MailChimp, Aweber and other kinds of email service providers and few of them use their own email servers.
But for individuals, mail tracking isn’t offered by email service providers like Gmail.
Mail tracking comes in handy when someone is not replying to your email and giving excuses like they didn’t get your email or they were not able to check your email due to certain reasons.
You just can’t figure out whether they are telling the truth or lying to you, in such cases, you need to check whether your email got delivered and has been read by them or not.
Maybe they are ignoring your email, and you are unable to find if they actually read your emails or not.
To come over this problem here is a simple solution to check mail status as delivery and mail open and other useful tracking details.
