We do not recommend self-testing MailTag (testing MailTag tracking using the same computer/device that you used to send your tracked email).
If you wish to test tracking, we recommend emailing a different email address that you own and opening your email from a different device.
For example: Please try sending a MailTag'd email with a link (such as "https://www.youtube.com") from Email1@Gmail.com to Email2@Gmail.com, and then open your tracked email using your phone's Gmail app.
You will receive a real-time desktop alert when your email has been read, and another alert when your YouTube link has been clicked.
Additionally, you can also track the real-time status of your tracked emails in your "Sent Mail" folder and Gmail threads (as seen below):
