Mailtracker iOS App Violates Our Email Privacy

I wanted to take a few minutes to address a new iOS app called MailTracker which I learned about through my Twitter feed this morning. Where TechCrunch calls this app stalker-y, I call it a violation of historical and well respected email standards (from the folks who design, manage and inform us what the standards are and how things should work – smart experienced people who have actually given email some thought). It’s also likely to become harmful to email senders who actually try to respect privacy. At the bottom is a solution if you are using iOS Apple Mail and agree that MailTracker is a violation of your privacy.
