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!

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

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)

I am using outlook 2003. I have received a message that requested a read receipt that I said yes to sending. It does not seem to be sending it. It doesnt appear in the outbox so I can not delete it but every thirty seconds my computer flashes up that it has an error trying to send something.
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.
All my other mail can still go in and out ok but the error messages are driving me nuts.
Any help would be gratefully received.

Answer:Outlook ' Read receipt' problem

Try this, open Tools> Options> Preference tab> click on E-mail Options button. Click Tracking Options button> on the lower section, click the radio button: Never send a response. Ok your way out and close Outlook. See if this will stop the message.

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.

 

Answer:Outlook, Keeps sending same read receipt

Hi all,
I'm bumping this up because I did a search for the problem and this perfectly describes it. In fact, this original post may well be from my co-worker in IT who really shouldn't have called me a "user" but that's an entirely separate issue.

Just wondering whether anyone has any ideas on what could be causing it. We're using Exchange 5.5 and Outlook 2000. Thanks for your help.

I sent a message requesting a read receipt (it's automatically set up that way). The message was read and the read receipt was sent back simulataneously as usual to my blackberry and my computer Outlook Express (I think it's version 8). It was for a meeting acceptance. I saw the read receipt myself on the blackberry, and then about 15 minutes later the read receipt was gone--from both the blackberry and the computer. What happened to it? All the other read receipts I've gotten from this person for the last year are still there.

So... where did this one go?

Thanks

I received an e-mail with a read receipt request on a POP3 account I can receive from but not send to. Outlook keeps trying to send the read receipt and displaying the following error message:


Task 'Incoming Only Acct. - Sending and Receiving' reported error (0x80042109) : 'Outlook is unable to connect to your outgoing (SMTP) e-mail server. If you continue to receive this message, contact your server administrator or Internet service provider (ISP).'
The read receipt message is not in the outbox so I can't delete it. Where is it? Can I delete it? How can I get rid of this problem? Thanks. Steve

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

Answer:outlook email problems during receipt of emails

One thing you could try - assuming by the tags that you are using Vista and Outlook 2007 - is the following...

Go 'Start' -> 'Control Panel' -> 'Programs' -> 'Programs and Features' ->
locate 'Microsoft Office <your version here>' -> right click on it -> select 'Change' -> then select 'Repair' and then 'next'...see this process through and try Outlook again.

More questions...
Did you install Office yourself or did it come pre-installed?
How much RAM do you have?
What is your Internet connection?

Outlook 2007 is a real memory hog - anything less than 2GB I have found to be terrible...and particularly with Vista.

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??
 

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.

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.)

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!!!

Hi everybody. I've had a search around and found several threads on this topic, but I'm not having any luck in finding a solution at the moment, so I thought I'd detail my exact symptoms. Hope that's ok

Setup info: I'm running Microsoft Outlook 2000 as may mail handler on a LAN comprising of 5 computers, all running on Windows XP. (Although each of the five profiles are stored exclusively on each PC - I don't have a dedicated email server). All of my PCs run Norton Antivirus, except for one computer which runs the self updating internet version of Norton Antivirus.

Problem: I've had a few phone calls telling me that people are unable to send email to us - I checked and I've not recived any email for a few days. I have experimented with all of the profiles by emailing to every computer in the office. None of the computers receive email, although all are able to send email to external sources (such as hotmail). There are no error messages.

The exception to this is "Computer 3", the one with the Internet Antivirus. This displays a whole host of error messages and will not send or receive email. I've checked the antivirus log and it appears that the software performed an automatic update a couple of nights ago. However, turining off my firewall etc has no effect.

When I send e-mail the receiving person has to OK a question that I want to be notified that they received my e-mail.

Hello ....

I have a client with a problem I cannot solve.

He is using Outlook in Office 2010 connecting to a Hotmail account via MAPI.

Sending and receiving email from Outlook creates the error 0x8004102A (Send/Receive Error).

Folders created either in Outlook or on Live.com are synced almost instantly so there appears to be no sync problem between his PC and the web.

However mail sent to the Hotmail address of my client can take up to half an hour or more to arrive in the Live.com inbox. When it does eventually arrive it syncs almost immediately with his PC reinforcing the view that the problem lies with Live.com.

What happens is that my client will receive clusters of emails at various intervals with nothing inbetween. Sending mail is fine - it is sent instantly and arrives as expected in good time. The problem appears to be the slowness of emails into the Live.com account.

This occurs with just one email or a number. It is NOT down to the amount of mail.

I hope I have explained this so it can be understood. I would welcome any suggestions or help to solve this problem. (M$ is of no help at all sadly)

Many thanks

Answer:Live.com Slow receipt of email and Outlook error.

Hello:
I've gone through a reformat to correct some problems not involving Outlook 2003. I reinstalled Office 2003 and imported my .pst file to restore all settings. No problem. I am trying to set up the views the way I had them. I think the view in the inbox before was ona daily basis. In other words the tree or thread showed e-mails recd. say on Monday, then Tuesday etc. Now the inbox will have something like Today, Last week, 2 weeks ago, 3 weeks ago, earlier this month, last month, and older. I know there is a recd. column that shows the dat but I was thinking I had them broken down daily by headings in the inbox. Am I completely forgetful or was there a different view.

When Outlook Express is opened, every e-mail that was sent "return reciept requested" causes Outlook Express to try to send a return receipt, which then fails resulting in an error message.

OE ignores all changes to the "return receipt" functions and continues to try to send them even before they are opened; when the mouse hovers over the particular e-mail.

A recent malware infection (which has been removed) caused a change in the registry and turned off Task Manager (which has been corrected). I suspect the problem with OE is also a registry issue, but cannot Google any information on this specific function or issue.

Two questions:

1. Is there a registry entry that controls the fuction of OE's "return receipt" function ?

2. If OE is uninstalled & reinstalled, will the stored e-mails be lost ?

An aggravating factor is that sbcglobal does not have a configuration setting to prevent duplicate e-mails from being downloaded and a recent change to the e-mail account by sbcglobal has resulted in the messages being duplicated 2 and 3 times in OE, and it is attempting to download another 4000 ( ! ) more, which will also all be duplicates.

This "return receipt" problem is preventing the ability to delete the duplicate & unwanted e-mails, so OE's functionality is reduced to nil.

Also, is there a static limit to the number of messages that OE can store & manage ?

Answer:Outlook 2003: not marking read items as read

Outlook Express has a tab to fix this-maybe Outlook has the same.
TOOLS/OPTIONS/tab READ
check Mark Messages READ after displaying (add 5 seconds)

Maybe that seconds number has been raised above the time you take to scan messages. OE doesnt care IF you peek at a message-it cares HOW long you stare at it.

Hi, I'm sort of new to forums, but I have a bit of a pickle, I have a red shield with a white x in it that resembles the windows defender icon in my system tray, when I hover over it it says "Your computer is infected !" When clicked it pops up a window saying: "would you like to update your security software and download registry cleaner?" and occasionally a ballon pops out of the system tray saying "Windows has detected spyware infection which corrupted the registry. It is recommended to load update to prevent data loss. Windows will now download and install the most up-to-date software for you. Click here to protect your computer."

I followed all the directions in the read & run me first thread, and nothing seemed to help, I'm attaching all the logs except counterspy as I couldn't find a way to get it to output a log in text format or anything, it said 0 malware found in everything except in my cookies there was 2 that it deleted.

Is there a piece of software around that will let me read those messages? I've tried to do it with Thunderbird but can't find a way just to read individual, stored outside of Outlook's pst files, messages.

Thank you.

goal: have two computers check aol email (i know i know but aol address is very important) using outlook 2007 in windows vista. both machines have to show the same email. if i check email on the desktop and receive a new message i have to be able to go to the laptop, check mail, and receive the same message. is this possible? i looked all over outlook 2007 for the "leave copy on server" checkbox and could not find it.

2: i need aol address book and stored email transferred from aol to outlook.

3: this is not as important but it would be nice to have both outlooks have the exact same calender as well.

what is the best, simplest, consistent way to do this? im pretty sure i should be able to have an option to leave email on the server so i can check it from more than one account. also, i saw a program for like 30 bucks that would do what i stated in number 2 but it looked sketchy. any ideas, help or tips would be greatly appreciated as this is getting frustrating for me and my client. thanks

also, is there a way to put the email that was taken out of aol back in? for instance, when i setup the email account in outlook it downloaded all the email from aol and if you log in at aol.com its not there.

I was using MSGTAG, until BT adding Yahoo to my connection, stopped MSGTAG working.

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.
