How to know if your emails are being read

No comments

Raise your hand if you’re tired of writing, “Hi! I was wondering if you’ve had time to read my email…”

In a perfect world, everybody would reply to all the emails we send. That not being the case, the second best thing would be if we knew if and when our emails have been opened and read. It would save us the energy we spend wondering if our message got through, and the time it takes to compose a follow-up email.

This is totally possible with’s email tracking feature. How does it work? All you have to do is compose an email, and send it. That’s it. You don’t have to think about yet one more thing to add to your list of tasks because our Chrome extension will automatically track every email that you create. The check in the Track box at the lower left corner of your email confirms this. (What do you do if you don’t want to track a particular email? Just untick this box.)

Tracking-on-and-off-small-cropped will send you live notification informing you as soon as the person you are emailing opens your message.  Inside the live notification itself, you can do two things: (1.) Open the email that you are tracking. (2.)  Mute the conversation. You’ll then stop receiving the live notification, an option you may want if you emailed multiple recipients.



Information gets to you quick because an eye will appear next to every email you are tracking. The eye is grey if the email has not been opened. It turns green as soon as the email is read. The eye is also there right inside your email, in the upper right corner.


Now hover your mouse over the eye. A tool tip will give you the details you need, how many times the email has been opened and when.


One more place you can see tracking information is inside the sidebar. Here you have a summary. You’ll see a list of the tracked emails you have sent a particular contact, as well as the details of when he opened them.
