outlook delivery reports

  User-42BE0B3A-FC75-4118-BB8E1390237F847E 13:39 23 May 2010

I use Office XP with W7.
Until recently I requested and got delivery reports.
They have now stopped (in the last week or so) although I still get read receipts. I have tried repairing Outlook and reinstalling Office with no success.
Has anyone any other suggestions that will work?

Tools> Preferences> Email Options> Tracking Options> tick the boxes "Read Receipt" & "Delivery Receipt"

I was trying to point out that both boxes are and have been ticked but I now no longer get delivery receipts

Sorry I misunderstood, the only other thing I could suggest would be to change your default Profile.

Woolwell is the expert on Outlook, he has helped me in the past.

You're too kind. I've learnt from errors and strike lucky occasionally.

Personally I dislike delivery reports. They achieve very little and as the above link states can get lost in spam filters, etc. If you are sending an important e-mail and you want to know if they have received it ask for an acknowledgement. But you probably will not get an acknowledgment reply from a company.
