Read Receipt feature

Does Comcast email have a Read Receipt feature?

Re: Read Receipt feature

Comcast's older "Zimbra" webmail does not support Read receipt requests, but the new "Appsuite" webmail does. In the Compose window, click Options, then "Request read receipt".


Read receipts are only sent if the receiving user's email software supports them (most webmail systems don't), and typically only if the recipient grants permission to send them (many users, like me, never do). Given the limitations, you're probably better off including some version of "Please reply so I know you got this" with the message you send.
