How to know when PDFs are Opened in your sent Email

know when PDFs are Opened/Downloaded

We all ask these kinda questions and wonder, what happened to the email we sent? Did our recipient receive it? Is it in the spam folder? Did it get lost in their inbox? Did they click on my links or open my attached files? Which attachments were opened? When was it opened? How many times was the email opened? What happened?

Well, today it is possible to know if your sent email was opened, what time was it opened, and most importantly, if your attached PDFs and docs were clicked/opened.
