When you are composing your email to be sent out from Outlook, you can also choose to track your email opens. To ensure your email opens are tracked in Fileboard, simply check the box labeled Email Open Alert. You will now get an email alert when this email is opened and read. This box is checked by default, so you should not have to change these settings unless you have previously unchecked the box.
Even if email open alerts are turned off, your email will still be logged in Fileboard if tracking is enabled.
