Email tracking

This module shows email notification tracking status for any messages in mail thread (chatter). Each notified partner will have an intuitive icon just right to his name.

Table of contents


If you're using a multi-database installation (with or without dbfilter option) where /web/databse/selector returns a list of more than one database, then you need to add mail_tracking addon to wide load addons list (by default, only web addon), setting --load option. For example, --load=web,mail_tracking


When user sends a message in mail_thread (chatter), for instance in partner form, then an email tracking is created for each email notification. Then a status icon will appear just right to name of notified partner.

These are all available status icons:

unknown Unknown: No email tracking info available. Maybe this notified partner has 'Receive Inbox Notifications by Email' == 'Never'

waiting Waiting: Waiting to be sent

error Error: Error while sending

sent Sent: Sent to SMTP server configured

delivered Delivered: Delivered to final MX server

opened Opened: Opened by partner

cc Cc: It's a Carbon-Copy recipient. Can't know the status so is 'Unknown'

noemail No Email: The partner doesn't have a defined email

anonuser No Partner: The recipient doesn't have a defined partner

If you want to see all tracking emails and events you can go to

  • Settings > Technical > Email > Tracking emails
  • Settings > Technical > Email > Tracking events

When the message generates an 'error' status, it will apear on discuss 'Failed' channel. Any view with chatter can show the failed messages too.

  • Discuss
  • Chatter

You can use "Failed sent messages" filter present in all views to show records with messages in failed status and that needs an user action.
