Many, if not all, mass e-mailing/newsletter services (mailchimp, etc.) rewrite your e-mail's links to some god-awful, long, URL that is used for tracking purposes.
This service would, upon initial opening of an e-mail, check a central server to see if anyone else has received said images and links,
and re-write them to remove tracking info. Cos who likes to be tracked?
||I definitely dont liked to be tracked, that's why my
browser constantly loads random pages in the background.
But i Can't say one way or the other as I didnt know that
urls were lengthened, nor whether there is a central server
to compare the urls to. I'll take your word for it.
