There is this tool I used to make use of, it is or was called “SPYPIG”. SpyPig is a simple email tracking system that sends you a notification by email when the recipient opens your message. It works with all major email providers like Yahoomail, Gmail, Outlook, HotMail, AOL and more. I don’t think it is around any more. I have been trying to use it and open their website for some months now but I have been having difficulties doing that. Maybe the developers no longer support the project. But do not worry, I have gotten alternatives for you! Keep Reading.

The recipent will not know you are tracking the emails and when they read your email message, you will immediately receive the following information:
