Do you remember when the internet started making its way into everyone's homes in the 1990s? It was such an exciting time. The possibilities seemed endless.

One great thing that came with the internet was how we communicate with others.

We used to have to sit down with pen and paper and hand-write someone a letter. Then we'd stuff it in an envelope and send it through what is now referred to as snail-mail.

Those days are over. Now we can simply type an email, hit send and bam, the recipient has immediate access to it. That person can be anywhere in the world and the correspondence only takes a moment to be delivered. Outstanding!

Unfortunately, when you send an email, you normally don't know whether or not it was delivered successfully and read by the recipient. Now there is a solution.

The website, GetNotify, provides a free email tracking service that notifies you when the email you send gets read. The email tracking technique is invisible to the recipient, which means they won't know you've sent them a tracked email.


The site keeps track of your sent messages and sends you a return receipt or read receipt in the form of an email read notification. It's like sending digitally certified mail.

You will be notified of the exact date and time the email was read. You'll also receive the recipient's IP address, geographical location, operating system and which web browser they are using.

You don't need to download any software and this works with all modern email companies including Gmail, Yahoo, AOL, etc. All you need to do is add .getnotify.com at the end of the recipient's email address in your outgoing email message. It's that simple.

Click on the link below to check out the GetNotify site and begin tracking those emails today.
