I recently bought an item that was going to be delivered via UPS and I noticed in the conformation email that the tracking number was able to be Previewed like a webpage.
Check out the video demo at the bottom.
This was done on a Mac running OS X Lion using the default Mail application.
- Locate the UPS tracking number
- Hover your mouse over it for a second
- Click the drop-down arrow
- Select “Track Shipment”
- A preview window will launch showing you the details
Obviously this is great since most of us don’t feel like opening a web browser, going to UPS.com and manually copying and pasting the number.
