OUTLOOK READ RECEIPT WITHOUT RECIPIENT KNOWING
Using SalesHandy’s read receipt Outlook plugin, you can track email opens in real-time and get live desktop notifications of it, without the recipient knowing.
It does not require you to request a read receipt from the recipients. Emails sent using SalesHandy’s Outlook tracking feature will look like a normal one, without any mark-able difference from a standard email.
Install SalesHandy’s Outlook Add-in and sign up to create a new SalesHandy account. Then open the Outlook app and fill in your login details.
To track read receipts in Outlook, while composing your email, select the “Track Email” button. Outlook read receipt tracking is enabled when the tracking button turns Blue. After that, all emails that you send will be tracked, without the recipient’s knowledge.
MORE ACTIONABLE DATA FROM OUTLOOK READ RECEIPT
SalesHandy helps you know an email’s open rate, showing the number of times a recipient has opened an email. It also tracks replies to a given email.
With SalesHandy, you can also track sent email’s open time, location, and device used to read it.
Based on this data, one can get to know about recipient’s engagement level and make an informed decision related to setting up a follow-up email or call.
HOW DOES OUTLOOK READ RECEIPT CONCEPT WORK?
It’s a simple but effective process. While sending your email, SalesHandy’s plugin inserts a 1×1 pixel image with it. When the recipient opens this email, the embedded image also loads, alerting our servers with the IP. Right then, you will receive a SalesHandy desktop notification. It will also notify of additional information such as when, where, and with what device the mail was opened.
How are we different?
SalesHandy’s tracking pixel will never affect your email’s Spam score or deliverability or its presentation.
METHODS TO ACCESS OUTLOOK READ RECEIPT WHEN EMAIL IS OPENED?
There are two methods to get outlook read receipt. Whenever a recipient opens an email with the tracking pixel, the sender will get an instant desktop notification as an Outlook read receipt.
In case a user misses the live desktop notification, one will have an option to view the read receipt stored in SalesHandy App’s activity feed and reports. Users can visit it later to see the history of Outlook read receipts.
Are there any limits to Outlook read receipts tracked in a day?
