When you enable email open tracking, we add an 1px x 1px transparent image to the outbound emails. When recipients open your email and allows images to be downloaded, the addon server receives the request and logs the open event.

  • Email open tracking is not a foolproof method to know whether the recipient has opened your email or not.
  • Some email servers (e.g. Gmail server) caches the images from email body, hence even if the recipient has opened your email multiple times, only one email open event will be logged in the addon report.
  • If the recipient doesn't allow to download images, the recipient might read your email but addon has no way to know that email was read.


  • If you are using email open tracking feature, try to add at least one image to the email.
  • Use the email link click tracking feature which is a much reliable way to track interactions.
