How To Request A Read Receipt
(Windows 98/ME/NT/2000XP Outlook Express 5 or 6)
In response to a question from Charlotte


While we don't generally agree with sending a "Read Receipt" there are times when it's important to know if someone has read your email or not. While it's not foolproof (the recipient can always refuse it and still get your mail) it can be a good way to ensure that important information has been received by your recipient. It's easy to send a read receipt.

In the Outlook Express Compose Window click "Tools" "Send A Read Receipt". Compose and send your message as you normally would. If your recipient agrees to your read receipt you will be notified by email when he/she has read it.

Do not use Read Receipts when sending casual or friendly emails. Use Read Receipt only when you're sending important or time-sensitive information. Think of "Read Receipt" as "certified mail, return receipt requested". Use it sparingly.
