What is a user-agent string?

A user-agent string is a text string that is a part of the client-server conversation. The user-agent string is managed by the mailbox provider or browser. Once the Email Client Monitor pixel is triggered, the pixel sees the user-agent string and gathers that data for Return Path. Return Path translates the user-agent string to determine the email client and platform a subscriber is using.
