Help with read-receipt.

Question: Help with read-receipt.

Hello, wondering if anybody knows the answer to this:

In Microsoft Outlook 2000 you have the ability to ask for a read receipt for either every message you send or you can go to View -> Options in the email message and select Read-receipt. Does anybody know whether it is possible to set it up so it asks for a read-receipt when you send an email to a specific user??

Preferred Solution: Help with read-receipt.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Help with read-receipt.

Not sure what you're after here; when you create an email you can go into the File Properties of the mail window and request a read-receipt. When the recipient receives the mail and open it, they get a message saying that the sender has requested a read receipt, is it ok to send. They either click yes or no so the read receipt is issued, or not. You don't really have another read-receipt options available to you other than that.

I already know how to create a "read" receipt for sent emails. From my understanding, when you set the function, I will received read receipts for all email that was read. I was wondering if this setting could be set on individual emails instead of all of them. Thanks!

Greetings. I would like to find out whether customers read my emails, but without obligating them to use a "read receipt" dialog box. Is there a way I can do this?

I'm using Outlook 2002. I often send e-mails that I need a read receipt. I know how to turn this option on and off but don't need or want to have it turned on all the time. Is there an EASY way for me to request a read receipt on specific messages only. I think it's a pain to have to drill down through >tools>options>Preferences>e-mail options>tracking just to check read receipt for one message. Then go back through the same procedure to uncheck it. There's got to be a quicker way

Gmail does not offer the feature.

Even if it did, the read receipt offered by Outlook et al will only work if the recipient has enabled/allowed the sending of such receipts, and there are not a lot of people that do.

I tried using a program called OutlookSpy which was recommended on another site but that tells me I have used up my free test period and now I have to pay, but I do not even know if it would work.

There is a user that continues to receive the same read receipt from a user she submited a message to on the same email server (exchange).
Both users have deleted the message from their inbox and sent items. We verified that all items have been purged from deleted items as well. Both are using Outlook 2000.
The only thing we have narrowed it down to is everytime the user who received the msg opens outlook the sender receives the same read receipt msg, even after this message has been recieved, read, and deleted.
Are there any known issues with Outlook 2000 occassionally not
designating the message as read?
Has anyone seen this issue before and what steps were taken to resolve it? Thank you for your assistance in advance.

Arggh, Subject should be: "Read receipt CANNOT go but won't stop trying"
A friend switched ISPs (and thus email domains) but decided to keep his old email address active for a while. The new ISP will not let mail be sent from the old address (receiving is fine). The guy accidentally clicked 'OK' to a request from a sender for a Read Receipt on a message that came in via his old address. Now, every time he opens Outlook, it tries to send the read receipt, but it cannot go out as it is 'from' the old domain. There is no copy of the read receipt in the Outbox or Drafts (or Sent) folders so we cannot simply delete it or change the "From" to the address with the new domain. Is there any way to kill this thing? (FWLIW, the account now is set to receive only, not send, in the send/receive settings. This has not changed anything.)

Hi all

I'm wondering whether someone out there might be able to help me with a frustration that I'm experiencing with Outlook read receipts at present.

I have just started a new job and have set Outlook up as I like it. One of the things includes asking for a read receipt to all emails I send (this is quite important in the role that I am in).

Anyway, more often than not I get read receipts, but every now and then I don't get them, even though I know the recipients have viewed the message their end (have since checked).

I have always got read receipts in the past from these people (when I've sent them from previous jobs or from home) and I know that they haven't changed their settings and have said that they are quite happy to send a receipt.

Is this just a glitch in Outlook or would my new work's server be somehow causing the problem?

I have checked with our IT team at work and explained the problem and all they have said is that the problem must be at the other end (even though it relates to different people and different places). They have confirmed that I have my settings configured correctly.

I'd be really grateful for any advice you could provide.

Bye for now

Answer:Outlook Read Receipt inconsistency

They may inadvertently choose not to send the read receipt unless their e-mail is configured to automatically reply to read receipts.
This feature is not on by default in Outlook.
To enable you need to go into Tools/options/e-mail options/tracking and set it in there to auto reply to read receipts otherwise they will need to say yes to the box that pops up saying the sender has requested a read receipt do you wish to send ? (or something similar)

Hello World.

I believe this is my first post on this site.

The issue involves configuring Outlook 2007 to exclude one email recipient from the general setting to request read receipts on all messages I send.

I configured the Outlook 2007 Tracking Options (Tools-->Options, Preferences Tab-->Email Options-->Tracking Options) to request a read receipt for all messages I send out.

One of my contacts works for a company that uses Lotus Notes. The read receipt "flag" in messages I send from Outlook 2007 causes various problems when she receives them. She and I narrowed down the problem to the "read receipt" flag. Tech support on her side has not come forward with a resolution on the Lotus Notes side.

On my side, I have looked for a configuration to exclude messages I send to this particular contact from the general tracking configuration described above. I have not located it.

I also checked the Rule Wizard. The Rules Wizard has an option to selectively request a read receipt from specific contacts. Presumably this option would work where the client is not configured to request read receipts on all outgoing messages. More importantly, there is no Rules Wizard option to specifically exclude recipients when the client is configured to request read receipts on all outgoing messages.

In summary, the issue involves configuring Outlook 2007 to exclude one email recipient from the general rule to request read receipts.

Thank you very much in advance ... Read more

that you are referring to Outlook Express, and that you have selected the option for OE to notify you when a read receipt has been requested?For this to work, you must open the email,it's not enough simply to preview it in the preview pane - did you do that?I hate requests for read receipts, I never send them, and personally don't see the point of them. It's almost as if the sender thinks I may have some reason to deny having received the email.

Question: e. mail receipt

I was using MSGTAG, until BT adding Yahoo to my connection, stopped MSGTAG working. I am now trying to use the Outlook Express receipt system, but it does rely on the active co-operation of the recipient, which frequently tends not to happen. Is there any legal, technical, or other reason why the very act of the recipient opening my e. mail should not automatically trigger a receipt? Thank you.

Answer:e. mail receipt

you can configure OE to request a receipt of email from the recipient. This is done by opening in Outlook Express, Tools/Options and clicking the Receipts tag, there ticking the relevant box.By default, the Returning Read Receipts is set to 'Notify me....' so it is up to the recipient to send a receipt or not.

Question: e-mail receipt

I maintain an address list of members of my club. Twenty five of those members have e-mail addresses.When I send circulars by e-mail, only a few members actually respond, the remainder remain silent. In the absence of a) my getting a message from the Mailmaster b)using the automatic receipt request system every time c) getting an e-mail address wrong, can I be sure that all twenty five members have got the message? In other words, does silence mean that the message has reached the recipients computer please?Thank you.

Answer:e-mail receipt

You can't be sure ever.Even if you ask for a receipt the recipient doesn't have to return one!!!You could send out an e-mail asking for people to confirm that they are receiving these messages, but then again you can't make people answer...

Hi,

Thanks in advance for any help,

last year i bought a Samsung computer in Thailand (Aug 09). The computer was sold without an operating system and i bought a genuine OEM System Builder Pack with Vista Home Premium.

The shop that i bought the computer from installed and activated the OEM software and all has been running sweet. I now live in Australia and wish to upgrade to Windows 7 Home premium.

The OEM software came with an upgrade option to upgrade to Windows 7, i have the new product key for the upgrade option as it came in the OEM System Builders Pack. However my problem is that i have lost the receipt for the original OEM software.

I have looked on the upgrade option website and see that Microsoft require a proof of purchase receipt before they will send an upgrade DVD.

Any suggestions as to where i could go from here, would Microsoft be forthcoming with the DVD without a receipt. I could tell them the product keys for both the OEM and upgrade options if this would this help.

If i get my hands on a Upgrade DVD can i use it with my product key (suspect they are all the same).

Finally when i bought the OEM software the shop told me i must activate the software in Thailand as it was licensed for "Distribution only to specific countries within Asia - Pacific region" and it says this also on the box. I did activate it in Thailand but am wondering if i will have any problems activating the Win 7 upgrade in Australia.

Would appreciate any comments o... Read more

Answer:Win 7 Upgrade with lost receipt?

Others have reported that MS allowed them to activate in a country other than the one they were supposedly restricted to, when they attempted phone activation and spoke with an agent.

I think the key you're referring to with the Vista OEM is the Vista product key. You wouldn't normally get the Win7 key until MS ships or authorizes your upgrade download. If they ship it, it will be on an insert. They email the keys for downloads.

Isolate the exact date, then contact the shop which sold you the OEM system builders Vista copy and ask them to look up and fax you the receipt. This may be your only option

If in fact you have a Win7 key issued with the Vista OEM upgrade deal, then you can use any Win7 installer to install Win7, although you may have to unlock all versions by deleting the ei.cfg file in Sources folder, then recompile the ISO to burn to DVD: Bootable ISO - Create from Installation Files

Hello again,my parents bought a HP Elitebook in Dubai on a business trip last year.As they barely used it and swiched to Apple computers last december they gave it to me as kind of a christmas present.It works perfectly fine and there is no reason to claim warranty so far. But i asked my mother if they had the receipt and she seems to have no idea where it could be. It is not in their "receipt storage" where they usually keep all receipts for electronics and expensive stuff.Now i checked the warranty status for this notebook and it is covered under warranty till June 2018. They must have chosen the extra long warranty i guess. (?) Now i just want to find out, if there is any chance that this warranty is still "valid", if we can not find the receipt.It would be such a waste of this nice warranty. Again,.. i do not want to claim any warranty service. I hope this nice notebook will just keep running for decades, like many of our other computers are doing. This is a "just in case" question.Thanks for help in advance.

Hi,
I have recently been given a POS system from a friend in a different country. It is quite an old system and the receipt printer is some overseas brand I have never heard of.
POS system is Sam4s Touch Screen POS System. Running XP I believe. Windows Embedded pos ready 2009.
Im having trouble connecting the printer to the POS. I downloaded and installed EPSON advanced printer driver and the printer shows ready in printer settings. Then I try to do a test print and it drops out mid print always at the same spot and goes to "offline" then "not available". It doesnt come back online unless I reset. Sometimes that doesn't even work.
The printer is an Ultra Fast TM200. After doing some research I found that the compatible printer is EPSON TM-T88iii. It also prints really slow when it does print
At this point im wondering if there is a faulty cable. It runs on the old serial ports.
Or im thinking it could be something to do with the IP addresses.

I am using Outlook 2003, with two e-mail accounts. One can be used to send and receive, whilst the other can receive only (restricted by the ISP). Just before Christmas a friend sent me an e-mail with a request that I send a read receipt. I agreed to this without realising that he had sent the e-mail to the account that cannot send replies. Ever since then Outlook has been trying to send the read receipt several times a day for the last two months. The read receipt does not appear in the outbox, and I cannot find any way of deleting it. Has anyone any ideas?

Answer:Outlook keeps trying to send view receipt

You could try changing the tracking set up to never send a receipt. If you havn't deleted the email do so then turn the tracking back on if you choose.I have mine set to send a read receipt automatically so I do not get requests to send.

Trying to run a small business and make a Epson TM-U235D receipt printer run from a new laptop with no serial port is like trying to run a steam locomotive with a TV remote. First, I have a 25-pin to 9-pin serial from the device out. Had to use a U-2303 compliant serial to USB patch cable and driver. The printer is on com port 5 and I can send test print signals to it. The Epson driver is loaded and the computer has a default printer (properly identified as a TM-U235) but I am still not clear if this driver is an XP, Vista, what kinda driver, I don't know. Has anyone tackled this one before? I need to have a 7 driver to run this printer and I can't find one anywhere (except for the scam driver monitor software ploys).

Sometimes when I get an email, (usually spam), when I open it, somehow, it sends a read receipt to the sender, (without asking me 1st!). The only way that I found out about it was that the sender's email box was full and it bounced it back to me as undelieverable! I figure it is some kind of script or something. Does anyone know of or have a "utility" that will stop the sending of a read receipt unless I ok it?? I figure this is one method used by spammers to see if the address are still valid.

Thanks a million!!!
