Steps

  1. Go to your PastePixel dashboard.
  2. Press the plus-button to create a new mail tracking.
  3. Make sure to add yourself to the blacklist to prevent tracking yourself.
  4. Enter the name of your mail tracking
  5. If you want to track certain URLs, add them under the Trackable URLs section.
  6. Go to the Mail application and create a new e-mail (New message).
  7. Enter the recipients, subject and body as you usually would.
  8. If you want to add the trackable URLs (from step 5) then you have to insert a link. Copy the trackable URL from PastePixel, press the right mouse button and select Link > Add link… and paste the URL.
  9. If you want to add the tracking pixel you have copy right image from PastePixel (select the image, press the right mouse button and copy it) and paste it in your e-mail. Note that the pasted image is invisible, so be careful not to add it multiple times.
  10. Now you are ready to send your e-mail.
  11. Go to your dashboard and press the created mail tracking, there you’ll see all tracked data as soon as your recipients get tracked.
