    You can encrypt your links with an autoresponder or similar tool for statistics.

    you can use analytics from any free ESP like mailchimp and track link clicks. If you are doing some emailing that you can't use a major ESP w/, email on acid has a very effective analytic tool but $45 a month i've used, litmus too but too expensive

    Use mailchimp for tracking CTR. I don't have any idea about sending to mail after clicking on the link. :)

    I don't know your marketing technique!
    So, if you are doing email marketing; almost all the email marketing companies provides tracking function!
    In any other case; use click-meter to track down everything!

    cheers

    Hello,

    Yes you will get notification, you have to generate "ON CLICK EVENT" for that link, When some one click on that link then you will be notified.

    Make your link look like this:

    Code:
    <a href="youForwardingURL" onclick='sendmymail("name of link clicked like privacy policy")'>Privacy</a>
    then include jquery and the following javascript:

    Code:
    function sendmymail(link) {
    var dataString = 'link='+ link;
    $.ajax({
            type: "POST",
            url: "send.php",
    	data: dataString
        });
    
    }

    and finally include the following php script in the root directory and name it "send.php":

    Code:
    <?php
    if($_POST){
        $link = $_POST['link'];
    }
    //send email
        mail("[email protected]", "Link Clicked", 'Someone clicked on the link: '.$link.'.');
    ?>
