There”s a Google Chrome extension called Streak that, when installed, lets you see when someone has read an email you sent. You know what this means? It means other people can use Streak and see that you have opened their email without responding.

An email recipient doesn”t have to have the plugin installed in order for the sender to be notified that it was opened. The recipient won”t get any notification that you”re tracking your emails, either. It”s all very secretive.
The plugin is free and easy to install. Once you download it and give it access to your Gmail account, it will start automatically start tracking your outgoing messages.
If you send an email to multiple people, Streak will tell you how many people have viewed it, but won”t necessarily reveal their identities:
Streak does a lot of other useful stuff, too. It”s built as a tool for customer relationship management, and it can do things like schedule emails in advance. Streak has been around since 2012, but the read receipt feature was added in November.
Do read receipts sound familiar? They should, since they are a big part of BlackBerry”s messaging service, BBM, and have been making people crazy for years. You can also enable read receipts in iMessage, though Apple makes the feature optional.
Another plugin, Boomerang, also offers users read receipts, but if you want to track an email, the recipient will be notified that it”s being tracked with a line inserted at the end of the email.
Currently an email continues on and on, as the recipient/others reply to it, but I can’t always see that there is a new addition, as it doesn’t come up as a new email — it remains in the original location by date. Do you understand my question? I can’t think how to make it clearer. — DeborahI hear you loud and clear, Deb. One of the biggest adjustments for people switching over to Gmail is the automatic chaining of emails in the inbox — that is, replies to a certain email thread are nested under the original email, rather than presented as separate, independent emails. You’ll probably get used to it after a while, but if you absolutely loathe the chained look, there’s a solution: Recently, Gmail relented and pushed out an option that allows you to “unchain” those emails. Go into your Gmail Settings (click the gear icon in the top right and then “Mail Settings”) and find the option called Conversation View. Switch Conversation View to the off position to unchain your emails for good.(Also, remember to scroll down and Save Changes, Deborah, otherwise your new view will not go into effect.)
