This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Are you only tracking total click totals or do you need per email or unique only clicks? – citricguy Oct 20 '11 at 6:19
only click totals – max steel Oct 20 '11 at 6:42

They appear under campaigns, which is under traffic sources. In your example URL the campaign would be support.
