How Do these Emails works?
These Email works in numerous ways. Most common methods by which these emails work are :
1.BY providing message recipients one-time access to a secure Web page that contains your message.Recipients get an email containing a link to secure webpage and direct readers to the page with the message, which is accessible only once. After that, the message is deleted.
2.The way most of these emails seem to work is by replacing the plain text of your email with a graphic image of the text, which is stored at the Web site’s server rather than in the email message itself.The original message just contains a link to this image. So user can view the image only and sender can delete the image whenever he wants
