    Read Receipt question (2003)

    I don't think this is something that can be done but you never know. Can I request a read receipt without the recipient being prompted with a Yes No window upon opening the message. In other words, I don't want to give the recipient the option of saying NO to sending a read receipt. Seems like this might be a privacy breach but I'm not sure.

    If this is for e-mails within your own organization and if you are using Exchange, it could probably be done.
    If it is for external e-mails, it's a no-no. It's the recipients choice. If I set up my Outlook never to send read receipts, I would be very annoyed if a sender could overrule that!
    There are other (tedious) ways to verify whether an e-mail has been read, used by spammers. I'm sure you don't want to be a spammer! <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Thanks Hans. It is for an internal email but the organizaton is province-wide (server residing elsewhere) and I don't want to mess with the big boys in Toronto! I think I'll forego this one!
