    Some companies who provide "ad campaign" services do this. Helps them track who reads what, and what email addresses are valid, and get rough geographical info on the reader/address. I once was speaking with a guy who owns an "ad campaign" service and he said they find that some people will bounce SPAM, but still read the email. Then, they know that even though a bounce came back, someone read the mail and the email is considered valid.

    "Phone Home" for email. I dunno, not sure I would trust a service from a site which uses spammer tricks.
