Yes, that's what web bugs are for, but in addition to being annoying
invasions of privacy, they are totally unreliable as a means of knowing
whether someone read the mail. All they will tell you is that the
recipient 'opened' the mail which doesn't mean she read it. Also many
MUAs will not load external images in HTML mail without at least asking
first so many people may have read the mail without ever loading the
encoded image URL.
