Does Yahoo Mail provide an inbuilt feature to Track Email Activity?

The feature of read-receipts and tracking is very essential and Yahoo Mail does not have that for some privacy reasons. Although, it is possible with other third-party tools. With the help of these features, you can track all details like when the recipient opens your email, and which links he clicks, and once you get to know this you can send recipient reminders for your next email.

But, Yahoo Mail does not provide this feature to get a read receipt or track the sent email. The feature is not in-built, but various alternatives are available to easily track and get the Yahoo read receipt.

Tools like Mailspring & MailTrack.io can make this possible for you.
