What does "read/unread" mean in sent email?

Re: Sent Email Messages

Presumably, it means messages you have either read or not.

Re: Sent Email Messages

Actually, by sent email I mean the messages that I have sent to other people and appear in my "sent" email file.  Some of my sent messages have the blue dot that I presume means that they haven't been "read" and others have no dot.  I'm interested in knowing if the blue dot (unread?) means that the receiving party's email system has "read" the message.

 

Thanks anyway.

Re: Sent Email Messages

The only way you can know if someone has read an email you sent to them is if they tell you so.  You can send them a read receipt request (in the new email format), but they are not obligated to reply.  Some recipients won't even see such a request, as not all email programs support them.
