How Does Email Tracking work?

Email tracking is basically done by adding a few image pixels with the email you send and when the receiver opens the email you sent, that images attached with the email will be loaded and tracking is done.

This concept is used by all the email tracking services or email tracking software both free and paid. The only difference you notice the accuracy of tracking like who opened the email, location, browser, attachment tracking, etc. Some Email tracking software may or may not provide all the features depending on the type of service you choose i.e.., free or paid.

Everything has a limitation, sometimes email tracking services or email tracking software also fails because of various reasons. Such as.

  1. Unable to load the tracking image due to adblocker.
  2. Unable to load image due to the user settings like load images on demand.
  3. Due to the security system that blocks the tracking of emails.

Have anything to add to the list, just comment below 🙂


  1. Awesome list. I would like to add SalesHandy to this list. SalesHandy provides unlimited email tracking for unlimited users. AND It's free.

    • Hi Karan,

      Glad you liked the list and we may include once we have gone through it. Thanks for the mention of a new tool.

  2. Hi Harish,
    I really like Mailboost as a free option for making my Gmail a little less scattered. I can schedule emails to send later and set reminders for myself. Helps me stay on top of everything!

    • Hi Ariel,

      Thanks for the recommendation. We will definitely go through Mailboost and try to include in our list of email tracking tools.

  3. Great article, Harish! Simple yet comprehensive.

    Our office is a big fan of Yesware. We actually integrate it with our phone system via a CTI called Tenfold. Unifying the two systems made our tasks easier and made our team more efficient.

    • Hi Rich,

      Good to know that you liked the list. Yesware is really a good email tracking tool and made to #1 position in our list.

  4. I suspect that MsgTag is no longer in operation – such a shame since I have had wonderful use of it
    (after donating several times to add my support), but recently the servers at the MsgTag centre seem to be not responding and I have not had any responses to my request for support emails for over 12 months now.
    MsgTag seemed to be working until today (15th Feb 2018) when suddenly the system starting sending back "wrong password or userid" alerts to my Windows 10 system. It appears that the servers are now not functioning, and I am receiving "bounces" for any support emails I send (previously they just went unanswered). Does anybody know anything about this?

    • Hi Kris,

      Yes, most of the users are also facing it. You need to use any of the alternatives mentioned above. 🙂

      • As a follow-up, strangely the servers started working again and worked fine most of the time from early March 2018 until 4th April 2019 (about 5 weeks ago). I have searhced high and low to see if there is any way to contact whoever can "check the servers" (including a search for Fisher & Young who was (at one time) the owning company.

        • Strange that it worked again. I think we can't use MSGTAG anymore but let's see. Will update the article if i get any info. Meanwhile, you can try other tools. 🙂

  5. hi kris…
    > I suspect that MsgTag is no longer in operation

    ya… it looks like msgtag has gone into the black hole but the website is still up so i have hopes. i have a status2 acct and i've been with them for years. i've emailed them at least 5 times but no replies. too bad, it's a nice simple no frills tracking app. nothing is forever…

    • Hi Norm,

      Yes, as Kris mentioned, most of the users are also facing it. You need to use any of the alternatives mentioned above. 🙂

  6. This article has been very useful in describing the various email tracking tools available on the internet which anyone can avail. With tools like Boomerang, GetNotify, DidTheyReadIt, SalesHandy, Yesware etc. people can track their emails easily with the kind of plan they choose.

    • Yes, I Loved MsgTag as well.
      If any company if bright enough to create an application that performed exactly the way MsgTag did, they will be on to a winner! I am sure everyone who has ever used MsgTag would pay to use such a service, even if it was on a subscription basis (I know I would pay up to $100 per year). Oh well, I guess it will now disappear into the midst of history…. 🙁

      • Hi Chris, I am "John" who wrote the MSGTAG contribution, below. I now use an email program called Outlook Express Classic ( ) which works well for old timers like me who believed absolutely in Microsoft Outlook Express ! For me the dream solution would be for Outlook Express Classic (OEClassic) to incorporate a clone of MSGTAG into OEClassic… The ultimate dream would make the new combined product capable of restoring old Outlook Express back-ups into OEClassic… OK, I'll dream on!

  7. I understand that MSGTAG closed down because it was not (sufficiently!) profitable. I used it from "day-one" and now I feel lost without it! It was run as far as I know out of New Zealand where another software company there MAY take it over… In the meantime what is nearest alternative program to MSGTAG??

    • Well, i don't see any nearest alternatives but you can try Newton mail if you are looking for email client which can track emails or use others like saleshandy or mailtrack.

  8. We are really grateful for your blog post. You will find a lot of approaches after visiting your post. I was exactly searching for. Thanks for such post and please keep it up. Great work.
