How do I know when email has been read?

How do I know when email has been read?

Can I set up my email so I know when someone opens the email I've sent to them? I've had a number of times when I sent emails out and people don't reply back. Thanks!

Re: How do I know when email has been read?

There is no way for a webmail program like Comcast to do what you describe.  You would need to use an email client like Outlook, Mac Mail or some other to send  a "read reciept" with the email.  But even then, compliance with a "read" notice is entirely voluntary on the part of the recipient.  So unless they reply there is really no way to know for sure.
