Can’t be done. There is no way to know for sure who has/hasn’t read an
e-mail.
Here are some ways you can attempt it, but none of them work 100% (or
even 50%)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/E-mail_tracking

Email tracking can be done with a fair amount of accuracy but it is a
pain
to implement. The basic theory is that you can embed a 1px by 1px image
in
your emails that must be downloaded from your server. When the user
loads
the email, as long as they allow it to request images from external
servers,
the image will be linked with a unique query string that when the image
is
requested, is passed via the url to your rails controller. This unique
identifier can be matched via your models to the specific user that has
that
token associated with their account. Once checking with the model,
checking
out what email user made the request, the controller then rather than
rendering html or partial actually returns an image back to the user
request
and as far as they know, most users wont be able to tell the difference.

this is not 100% accurate though and will take time to implement. There
arent any plugins or gems that I know of being available that handle
this.
Maybe I’m wrong and someone else will know though

This is really the most accurate way but takes alot of jumping through
hoops
to get it to work.

It also doesn’t work if the users client blocks remote content (most
do).
