we are looking for a mail system with the ability to know it a client has visited the link.

Our idea is to prepare a mail for a certain group of customers, on that mail we will include a url to our proposal/video/whatsoever . We would like to acknowledge if the customer has clicked the link.

Is that possible?

Pretty much all the major hosted options can do this. Take your pick(these all point at documentation):
Constant Contact
Campaign Monitor just does it automatically for all links, instead providing instructions on turning it off.

I also know that the self-installed PHPList can do it.

Plus 1 for MailChimp, I was going to throw that into the pot if no one else had. – Toby Jul 17 '11 at 11:07
