that you are not in Internet Express when you should be in Outlook Express. the options you quote are in Internet express.

You have to be in the Create Mail mode for this option to be shown in Tools.

Quite right -pops- but it's best to set it in Outlook Express-Tools-Options-receipts if you need this facility.

In "Outlook Express", as -pops- says, Create Mail and when the New Message window comes up, type up your e-mail, and then select Tools - Request Read Receipt from the menu bar in this window. Then send it.

Madboy was correct in that in Tools - Options of the main window is a Receipts tab. You can put a tick in a box here to request a read receipt for all messages you send. Saves you doing it for each individual message. Remember that the person receiving the e-mail can refuse to send a receipt if they so wish.

Of course, you can send an e-mail in Internet Explorer by selecting Tools - Mail and News - New Message. This opens the New Message window of Outlook Express.
