How can I tell if a sent message has been read by recepient

Problem Solver

Re: email

The typical term applied to what you are asking about, at least as far as I am aware of, is a 'read receipt requested'.  I normally use the web interface for the email system and I am not finding anywhere within it where you can select the option to have a read receipt request sent.  I don't know if this would be an option if you are using an email client rather than the web interface, someone who is configured using a client would have to provide input on that.

 

But even if a client based interace is being used with the email system, I don't believe you would be guaranteed of receiving notification when someone read your email.  I say this because in my work environment when someone sends me an email and they have flagged it for a read receipt request, I am notified that they have requested a read receipt and I have the option of either saying Yes to send the read receipt or No not to send it. 

 

Hope this helps you out.
