Being able to track sent emails can be very useful. Sometimes you send an email and, for one reason or another, you cannot or do not want to ask if it has been read. During times of urgency, this can be a source of distress for you. Receiving read receipts is sometimes very necessary. Especially when you have sent an important email and you want confirmation that the person it is intended for has read it.
Email Tracking is an interesting feature that will let you know when and where the recipients open the emails that you have sent them. However Keeping track of sent emails in Gmail is not so easy, since you have to separately follow up email messages for each and every member and wait for a reply from the other side.
