e mail return receipt

can I get a e mail return receipt?

Accepted Solution

Re: e mail return receipt

Comcast's older "Zimbra" webmail ("web.mail.comcast.net/zimbra/...") does not support Read receipt requests, but the new "Appsuite" webmail ("connect.xfinity.com/appsuite/...") does. In the Compose window, click Options, then "Request read receipt".

Read receipts only work if both the sending and 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, consider including some version of "Please reply so I know you got this" with the message you send.
