Hi Oliver and Michael,

I just tried it in one of my installations: external and internal links 
are treated alike regarding statistics. (Everything else would be 
strange, given that from the point of view of the recipient of the 
newsletter both are just links to some website.) So, external links too 
are given a jumpurl-parameter and all other parameters like internal 
ones, and thus can be tracked in the statistics, at least in the case I 
just tried.

I'm using direct_mail v 2.6.10 here.

Take care,
