I need a cookie to be sent by e-mail

I need a cookie to be sent by e-mail. So that by opening such a mail a
cookie would be stored in appropriated place by client. Then the subsequent
requests from this client to corresponding web-resource would use this
cookie. How such an e-mail should be composed?
Best regards,
Igor.

Isn't it more simpler to provide Url with parameters in the e-mail? And then
when client will make the request and web-resource will check for request
parameters.

Cookies are transferred in the http header, and e-mail can only contain http
body. In order to store cookies you'll have to perform request on the
appropriate web-resource

I know that sometimes I'll open up email in Outlook or in a web client
and it will try to save a cookie just by me viewing the email. I know
because I have privacy protection turned on for all cookies.

Could it depend on the client being used to read the email that
determines if a cookie can be saved or not?

He doesn't want the person opening the email to know they got a
cookie...
