Track and Confirm Email Delivery to Recipients
When you send an email, you never know when it's going to be read or if it's going to be read at all. With Confirmeo, you can lay these fears to rest.
This registered email tracking service lets you track and date emails. You first send emails to Confirmeo, and it then relays those emails on to the final recipients after they click on an email confirmation link.
This lets you know the exact time that they read your emails, and it also confirms delivery.
To use the service, just append ".confirmeo.com" to the end of your recipient's email address. You don't even have to register. For example, say you want to email email@example.com, and you want to know if Bill reads your email. To use Confirmeo, you would send your email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
One thing to note is that Confirmeo operates on Paris time so it's timestamp is set accordingly.
The old school (and more secure) way to know if someone read your email is to add a return receipt header to your emails, but many email clients give users the option to never send a return receipt so it isn't as reliable.
