This is however not substantial because a person may choose not to answer.

The other email tracking system requires a person to have a server. This system works for most e-mail systems. When a person sends a message to any other person, it is indicated on the server inclusive of date and time. It is however good to have a separate page to store this information and leave it not tampered with. The good thing about this system is the fact that a recipient of a particular message will not know that they are being tracked.

It can be voice, fax or any such thing. The idea is to refrain from Public Switched Telephone Network and use Internet instead.

For the purpose of connecting switching stations and aligning telephone network providers, VoIP is turning out to be a rousing mantra of present-day technology.
