    Some people have asked about tracking outbound mails and seeing whether users have clicked or opened the mail

    Hotaru CMS allows you to select any SMTP server for sending of mails
    I use Mandrill for sending mails even though my mail account is with a different host provider. They are the same company that makes MailChimp

    There service is free upto I think 12,000 mails a month. The dashboard they provide shows all mails sent, how many got delivered, opened, returned etc etc

    This may be a good alternative for those who want to track mails through Hotaru CMS
