There's no standard that would let you implement #1, and #2 can
only be achieved by sending personalised links and checking for
the hits on the web server.



Cheers,
Tink

Try their demo - you may well find that it only registers links to your own site, etc.

Aside from this and the read receipts, most mailing list packages will work nicely - check out mailman or majordomo

We have tried both, majordomo, mailman, sympa, etc...
I had to install them several times for some customers, but it doesnīt fit with these requirementes, i canīt get statistics about the number of receipts that have opened the mail or the number of times that a link has been opened.

Iīve already installed the demo and it works perfectly. It allows to extract statistics about i want.
Iīm going to buy if someone tells me about another fantastic program

Regards and thank you very much !

You found a package that claims to meet your requirements.

Unless they divulge *how* they claim to achieve the clicked-on
bit I don't believe this for a second. As I said: there's no
RFC that would allow for checking of whether or not mail has
been opened. And even in the clients that have such extensions
(Outlook for instance, or KMail) it's at the users discretion
to permit auto-responses of that sort. The only way to get a
handle on that is if you not only maintain the mailing-lists
but also have all participants mail-boxes local to their server
machine and are offering mail up via IMAP.




Cheers,
Tink
