Following these KPIs you can face several hard-to-explain use-cases :
- a prospect responds to you but the email opening was not detected : his/her email tool is configured so pictures are being blocked, and so is the pixel used for the tracking
- the explanation is the same for prospects who click on a link but opening is not detected
- some bounces cases send an opening notification as the prospect email server may "ping" the pixel used for the tracking
