Tracking Emails

Hi there, Could someone tell me if there is a website where I will be able to download for free, a way of knowing if my Email has been read the other end to where I send it. Thanks for any help.

Note that the free version of MSGTAG will only send you a read receipt if the original e-mail is to a single addressee.

If you send an e-mail to multiple recipients and want a read receipt from all recipients, you'll have to use the paid for version.

Thanks for the help to you both, see how I get on.

Look in tool for your E-mail client or look in Help for receipt.
Most programs allow you to tag an e mail so that the recipient has to kick a box a mail has been received and read.

I use Outlook Express and always get a receipt when e mails have been read. You only have to go into tools, options and click on receipts.
Beware of MSGTAG some people cannot open sent e mails which I found out, once you have it on your PC if for some reason you wish to delete it then you have to reset your e mail to the original settings or you can't send.

"I use Outlook Express and always get a receipt when e mails have been read. You only have to go into tools, options and click on receipts."

But that relies upon the recipient of the e-mail actually choosing to respond with 'yes' to your read receipt request. If the recipient clicks 'no' when asked, you'll receive nothing.

The whole point of MSGTAG (and, I suspect, of polod's question) is to receive a read receipt without any action from the recipient.

What you say is true, but with MSGTAG too many just coudn't read my e mails especially with an attachment.

Hi Jackoms, you got it in one! Thanks but I dont use Outlook express ?

Outlook has an option in Tracking Options which allows delivery receipt. This only tells you that your email has been displayed on the recipient's computer and does not require a receipt request to be acknowldged by them. If you don't use Outlook either, then I am sorry to say that I don't know any other solution.
