Using outlook for email open tracking


  • Hello,

    Occasionally I send emails that I need to know if they were opened.   The recipient may be opening this email on an iPad, iPhone, other handheld or Web mail.    

    What I would like to do is create a 1x1 pixel PNG file, give it a unique name, place it on my web server and place the PNG in the Outlook message.  That way when the end user opens my email, they also make a web request for the 1x1 pixel file and create a hit.

    I can't figure out how to do this in Outlook 2010.   When I create a new html email and  insert the picture into the email it creates a hit when I insert it but not when the email is opened by the other user.

    Thanks for any assistance.
