Qld company, ReadNotify, appears quite popular; a NYTimes mention today..

What is ReadNotify?


ReadNotify is the most powerful and reliable email tracking service today. 

There are two ways you can send tracked emails: 
Simply add: .readnotify.com  to the end of your recipients email address
(they won't see this) or, install our ActiveTracker plugin to add the
tracking for you.

ReadNotify will endeavour to provide the following in all tracking reports:

Date and time opened 
Location of recipient (per their ISP city /town) 
Map of location (available on paid subscriptions) 
Recipients IP address 
Apparent email address of opening (if available) 
Referrer details (ie; if accessed via web mail etc) 
URL clicks 
How long the email was read for 
How many times your email was opened 
If your email was forwarded, or opened on a different computer

All messages sent via ReadNotify benefit from our SPF compliant and Sender-
ID compliant mail servers. This confirms safe transmission of your 
messages, and also enables us to report delivery status to you (including: 
bounce-backs, delays and success notifications). Delivery information is 
listed in your Personal Tracking Page.

Note: ReadNotify.com does not use or contain any spy-ware, mal-ware, nor 
virues, it is not illegal to use, and does not breach any privacy 
regulations in any countries.

What else does ReadNotify do?

There are lots of great features available to you - these include the 
following sending options:

Certified email 
Ensured-Receipts and retractable emails 
Invisible tracking 
Self-Destructing emails 
Block printing 
Adobe Acrobat PDF Document Tracking 
Track MS Word or Excel documents

You can also choose how to receive your receipts:

In your Personal Tracking Page (when you log in) 
Email Read otifications 
Legal Proof-of-Opening receipts 
Delivery Service Notifications (DSN's) 
SMS alert on your cell-phone or pager 
Instant Messenger 

ReadNotify offers a lot of features and sending options, but it is very 
easy to use our service. On start up, your account is already configured 
per our 'Recommended' tracking defaults - and we will automatically send 
you email ReadNotifications when your tracked emails are opened.
