Contact field update while sending mass email

There is any possible way to auto update contact fields when we send mass email to contacts using mass email functionality.
Example: Contact field “Magazine sent” (check box) to be set TRUE when we send mass email to contacts.
Is any possibility to control this using template name or any other field attributes?

Finally decided to use Cron Kit, wrote a class to pull all completed task (Activity History) today which contains “mass email” in subject and get related contact Id from task then update the required custom field.
The only data manipulation action happening while sending mass email is task creation bydefault which is closed. So we cannot initiate any trigger and workflow hence “Activity History” is not exposed for those options.
