A small part of my software needs to send out emails. I could really do with adding tracking capability, to see when links are clicked (and who clicked them). I could add this myself (via VBA/.Net/Javascript etc), but it would be crude and I'd much rather use a service that's designed for this (via REST GET/POST commands etc).

Anyone have any suggestions?


Where I work, we typically use a transactional email service like SendGrid. SendGrid can send real-time notifications about events that happen on the SendGrid system to a URL. These events include clicks, opens, unsubscribe, bounces, and many others. These events include more data than what SendGrid records and allow customers to customize their own reporting.
