How can I tell when my email is opened?

How can I tell when my email is opened?

Is there an email setting that tells me when my email is opened or received?

Re: How can I tell when my email is opened?

In a word--------no.  Webmail like Comcast or Yahoo or Gmail has no capability to use "read" recipts.  To do that you would need to enable the account in a deskop email client like Outlook, Mozilla Thunderbird, Windows Live Mail or some other.  They have that capability.  But understand that even then, compliance is voluntary on the part of the recipient.  You can request that they acknowledge your email, but they don't have to comply.
