Free MSGTAG

I recently downloaded the free version of MSGTAG. It started working well for my sendings, to individual recipients only, but has been getting progressively slower in reporting back when recipients open their mail. It now seems to have stopped altogether.

I did not notice anything about the free version being on a trial basis.

Has anyone else had trouble please?

I've been using the free version for about three months. I occasionally forgets to notify me but on the whole it's fine.

What's this about, and how do you get the download?.Regards.

Hello pops,

Thanks for your input. I must send myself a test e-mail, but I have 16 un-notified messages going back over the last week. Maybe I have a load of friends all on holiday at the same time!?


Hello spuds,

I was introduced to MSGTAG when I raised the discussion topic "E-mail receipt". Suggest you look at that discussion, and go to click here which explains the facility better than I could. It does not work on multiple recipients unfortunately for me! Enjoy.

pops.

The test worked well, and in record time!

Hi Lemur. Iv`e been using mstag and just lately
it has stopped notifying me too. Meshuga.

I find MSGTAG very useful for confirming whether an email has been opened. Better tha the request read receipt which is part of Outlook and OE as the reply is automatic as soon as the recipient opens the message.

i had it but it wouldn't work.if i remember rightly it was my firewall that was causing the problems.

Hello Meshuga, pops and suzie005,

Thanks for your input.

As a novice, I wonder if maybe the facility has been over popular, and perhaps got overloaded. I wonder also, if anyone who has upgraded, has had similar problems, or might be able to find out more??

i found when i had problems that they were very very helpful and quick to respond to email-when i couldn't sort things out via faq's
