How to track Email Messages

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

Obviously, you need to check the email account you're using to send the mails for bounced mails.

Apart from that, you can try this: Using delivery status notifications

2. Track which links(in the email body) were clicked.

This is discussed in the other thread where you asked about this.
