In one sentence, MailTag is free real-time email tracking, made easy. MailTag’s service is offered through a simple browser extension (chrome and firefox) and offers real-time insights and statistics about a user’s sent emails. Below is our interview with Alex Edson, CEO of MailTag:


Q: Alex, how does it work?

A: Simply add the MailTag extension to your browser, and you’re ready to go. When your MailTagged emails have been opened, you’ll receive a real-time desktop alert and email alert, letting you know your messages have been read. You can also track other neat things such as email reopens, recipient device information, link clicks, and much more.
