You could have the links go to your server, which then extracts the real URL from a parameter in the link and redirects the request to that URL.

I would consider this kind of behavior an intrusion of privacy, and take steps to avoid it.

Hi,
I need to create a module that resembles a "Email Marketing" where you can:

1. Send email to list of users and track the delivered & undelivered email addresses;
2. Track which links(in the email body) were clicked.

Basically sending & tracking email messages.

Please suggest me a good approach for the above scenario. I would like to have an tutorial/example or a Java API that does this.

Thanks for your help in advance!


Regards,
Somu

Don't wake the zombies. Also, don't hi-jack threads, especially when you create your own thread as well.

Yeah I didn't want to post the duplicate message. I tried to remove it, but couldn't find the option to do that.
 
Look! I laid an egg! Why does it smell like that? Tiny ad, does this smell weird to you?
