"View in Browser" does not feed mailing statistics
I just want to log the existence of the issue generally... suppose you send a newsletter and it has a "View in Browser" link.
Suppose the recipient uses that link. The view the mailing and then drill-down, clicking through some more links.
What happens to the stats?
- The web-based view does not count as an "Open". The MUA may or may not report back the "Open" on the original message.
- You will not have any "Click Through" events logged.
This is because the "View in browser" variant of the newsletter is not instrumented with tracking codes (while the MUA variant of the newsletter does have tracking codes).
