Dumb Tracking Q

Hi Guys,

This is not really an issue with MW, just wondering if anyone else has come across it and knows the solution.

I have enabled both Open and Click tracking in my campaign and both seem to be working great, I know how many have opened the email and how many have clicked each of the links I have in the email, no problems there then. However, I can see that literally hundreds of people have clinked the link to my main website - and here's the problem - none of the visitors are showing in Google Analytics, which seems weird!

I have tested all the links from within a test email, so I know that they all work. Ideas?

Cheers

Anti/Spam and/or AntiVirus software on the email server might open the emails to check them, and they will also follow the links, that's why you get high numbers apparently without any reason.

Which mailbox providers do that (Yahoo, Hotmail, Live, Outlook, etc)?
AFAIK, Gmail does not (or am I missing s/t)?
