Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
Can anyone suggest a good product? maybe integrates to the site php/mysql?
I need to manage lists of users, keep notes / comments, record dates etc - then send out a standard email and have the ability to track if and when they read this email.
Appreciate any advice on this - i'd prefer open source type thing.
You put a 1x1 pixel transparent image in each email where the image is generated by php script. So your email would include the following img call:
transparent.php tracts the date/time that firstname.lastname@example.org opened email 98765 and then pushes out the transparent 1x1 image.
The problem is that most email readers today do not display images by default so the call is never made to transparent.php.
