    Ben, After trying various ways to get around outlook, gmail, hotmail and the other programs out there I arrived back at a modified version of this inline image sample to track opens. I have noticed that gmail, hotmail, yahoo etc and outlook 2010 are making it much harder to track email opens by li... read more »

  • Using GMail's Plus-Style Addressing To Track Bounce Back Email Meta Data

    Posted on Apr 21, 2010 at 2:46 PM

    I am finishing up development of a new Mass Email application and figuring out how to track bounces was the only piece I had left to completely figure out. I had tested downloading the bounced emails from the server into my mail program using CFPOP so the bounce could be analyzed and fixed locally.... read more »

  • Using ColdFusion's CFLocation Tag For Inline Image SRC Attributes

    Posted on Jan 16, 2010 at 6:09 PM

    The plot thickens.... I need a beer..... I may have to rely on the images more than the stylesheet after this deflating day. It seems that when I embedded a non dynamic stylesheet line in the email and not in the middle of the template it worked more often than throwing the dynamic tag with the uui... read more »

    Ok so I created a test yahoo and hotmail account and cleared my test email database. Test emails to both did not generate an open response with the stylesheet tag but they did generate one with the image tag once images were allowed. I was bummed but there is hope. I am not sure why GMail allows i... read more »

Android Mail Client The only browser based email client I have come across that has stripped it out so far is OWA. I sent test emails to someone I k... read more »

  • Using ColdFusion's CFLocation Tag For Inline Image SRC Attributes

    Posted on Jan 16, 2010 at 4:54 PM

    So after further trials it looks like outlook web access may strip the stylesheet tag out but the Outlook 2007 application does not. Wierd and a little deflating. Maybe there is another way to fool it. I really hate testing. Kevin... read more »

    Posted on Jan 14, 2010 at 1:01 PM

    Whoo Hooo this also inserts a row into the DB when I forward this test email to my Motorola Droid phone and open it. So this proves that you can cheat the system a bit. So I think I am on to something here..... Kevin... read more »

    SO I got so dang excited about my own question I just had to blow off my important work today and test it out. I did not want Ben to have all of the fun with this one. Ok, this is pretty freaking cool. I tested out calling a .cfm file in the stylesheet line from the email I sent out and it does exe... read more »

    Ben, Great article. I am building a mass email application and have been working on this notification issue for awhile. Outlook and many other applications to not load images so it has posed quite an issue for me trying to determine who opened the email. Do you think it would work if I embeded a ... read more »
