Being Advised When Someone Has Read Your E-Mail
Outlook offers a command whereby you can be informed when someone
has received or read an e-mail message you sent. You can even send a
miniballot to someone else, solicit their vote, and have the vote sent to you by
e-mail. To perform this magic trick, start in the Message window and go to
the Options tab. In the Tracking group, select one or more of these options:
Use Voting Buttons: A Vote button is included on a drop-down list in the
e-mail message you send. Choose a set of buttons from the drop-down
list, as shown in Figure 3-4. The recipient clicks the Vote button, chooses
an option on a drop-down list, and the response is sent to you in the
form of an e-mail message with the word Approve, Reject, Yes, No, or
Maybe in the subject line.
Request a Delivery Receipt : You’re informed by e-mail after the
message is delivered. Select the Request a Delivery Receipt check box. To be
informed, however, you and the recipient must use the same Exchange
Server, and the recipient must choose to inform you that the message
was delivered. Don’t count on this one really working.
Request a Read Receipt: The message box appears, as shown in Figure 3-4.
If the recipient clicks the Yes button, a Message window appears
immediately so that he or she can send an e-mail informing you that the message
was read. The message, when it arrives on your end, lists the date and
time that the response message was sent. Select the Request a Read
Receipt check box.
