How to recieve a conformation email that an email sent was received by the addresse?

Does Comcast allow the sender of an email to receive and conformation the the addresse recieved and read the email?

"Delivery" and "Read" receipts are only sent 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).

 

Comcast's older "Zimbra" webmail ("web.mail.comcast.net/zimbra/...") does not support either type of receipt request. The new "Appsuite" webmail ("connect.xfinity.com/appsuite/...") supports "Read" receipts, but not "Delivery" receipts.

 

Given these limitations, you're probably better off including some version of "Please reply so I know you got this" with the message you send.

Thanks for the response Now I know. Might be a good topic for all users, not just those that ask a question. I do not use the FAQ's very much and I am probably in the majority. Just a thought. Any way thanks DVFD935
