Read receipt for read emails in Outlook 98

Question: Read receipt for read emails in Outlook 98

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)

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.

Hi all,

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 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.

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

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

If it was an Outlook issue, all your email messages would be equally affected, but since only some of them are affected, they are probably damaged or corrupt. Nothing you can do about that.

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.

My dad recently got a new laptop to replace his five year old beast. On that five year old beast is thousands upon thousands of very important business emails and legal documents. Naturally, he needs to have access to these emails.

Due to his concerns about getting his new laptop up and running, I didn't get to do the logical thing and transfer his old emails and settings over to his new laptop before he started using it. Now, it's been over a month and his new laptop is quickly accumulating new piles of vital emails.

I need to find a way for him to read his old emails quickly and easily.

He uses Microsoft Outlook. I've got the original computer with all the emails on it as well as his new computer. Can I import his old email into Outlook on his new computer without losing any of his new email or overwriting his new settings? Failing that, is there a way for me to view his emails, as saved by Outlook in .dbx files, in plain text?

Note: this isn't a situation where I can just try something and hope it works. My dad's a lawyer and losing a single email can be roughly equivalent to the end of the world. So I'm not going to do anything experimental like trying to import his old emails just to see if it works unless someone knows for sure that it will.
 

Answer:Read emails in plain text without Outlook

Ah I was going to aim you at a small app that was free but now costs $5 called DBExtract as it will do exactly what you need.

http://www.oehelp.com/DBXtract/Default.aspx

it recovers the emails into a text file, sadly leaves the header and footer info ( email server info etc in the text file )


Worth a look at the app anyhow, their maybe an older free version still knocking around on the net.

When using Outlook Express (Note: EXPRESS, not MS Outlook) I often use the 'Find' function to search for old sent or received emails. However I'm not able to open the emails from this feature (message reads: 'Message could not be Displayed - Check your comp for low memory or low disc space'). I have plenty of both - I'm using a near new comp with 80GB hard drive, only 35GB of which is used. I have 2GB of RAM with 1GB or more of head room when running usual applications.

This is a time-wasting hassle, as I need to write down the date and time the email was sent, close the find box, then search for the email chronologically. If that's not the one I was looking for I have to do the same thing all over again.

Would this have anything to do with the size of my Outlook Express folder, which has about 7GB of emails stored.

Depending on your email provider, and the Outlook settings, you may still be able to access the email on the provider's webmail page. For example, if you read BT emails through Outlook, going to BT.com and logging in there will show all emails received. BUT, if Outlook is not setup to leave mail on the server, they may not be there.

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.)

I use msgtag, because with many of my emails I need to know that they have been opened. Eg. notices of committee meetings, etc, for which there is no reply needed. It works fine.But there are some people for whom I need to attach a ?Read receipt request? because their systems don?t trigger msgtag.Is there any way that I can ensure that ?Read receipt request? is included on those emails automatically? I tend to forget to add it manually (especially when I?m sending the same email simultaneously to several people).

Answer:Read receipt request automatically on only some em

In Outlook you can set it to automatically ask for a read receipt for every e-mail which you could toggle on and off as required. Which e-mail client are you using?

I have Windows Live Mail set to automatically request read receipts. Recently I have been getting such receipts even when the recipient selects No in response to the request! The wording of the receipt is "Your message to ...was read on..." If the recipient selects Yes, I get two receipts, one worded as just described and one saying "This is a receipt for the email message you sent to.... This receipt verifies that the message has been displayed on the recipient's computer..."
Can anyone explain the reason behind this rather odd situation, please?

Hi,
I use Msoft Outlook and have it set to request read receipts. I need to know when members of our group read their emails, one member uses google mail, also hotmail and NTL. I never get read receipts. Google mail is the account I send the groups communications to. What does he have to do to get it to send read receipts ? I would imagine its the cheapest account google offer that he is using.
I can then keep track on whats been seen which is proving vital.
If google mail is incapable of such, should hotmail be able to do so ? Where is this enabled ? I see one from ntl but only one.

Like another user here, I inadvertently clicked yes on sending a couple of "read receipts" from Outlook 2003.
Now I have constant "Sending Message 1 of 2" popping up.
This happened before and I was able to use the trial version of Outlookspy to solve the problem.
The trial period has ended and I need to correct this again WITHOUT having to buy the Outlookspy tool.
I am not a MAPI developer.
How can I delete the phantom "Read Receipts" without paying for an add-in tool?
All help will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks, in advance.

I sent an email in OE with a request for a read receipt, but the recipient says she didn't see the request. she's inexperienced and may have just panicked when the window appeared and so clicked No without reading it; but is there a setting that prevents the appearance of the window? My OS is ME, hers XP.

Answer:read receipt request not received?

Did you send the email to a hotmail or other web-based email account? (as in you dont require a client like MS OE or Mozilla TB) If you did then the receipt request may become obsolete - not all web-based email accounts support them as far as I know

I am looking for a program that will give me a "secret" read receipt when my emails are read. Being able to designate individual emails for this service would be nice. We use IE8's Request Read Receipt but many clients, especially those currently paying slow, don't elect to return the read receipt. They then deny receiving the past due notice. I remember having one of these with a past service provider "Xpress America" and it worked great! This is the site that is going to make my day! Any ideas?

I currently cannot use Microsoft Outlook with Virgin Media blueyonder account.

The Outlook 2003 outbox is blocked by read receipts which I can't delete. I used the info in www.outlook-tips.net/howto/delete_rr.htm

Where the instructions say Choose Delete, I have done this (using OutlookSpy). The message I get is

IMAPIFolder:eleteMessages() returned MAPI_W_PARTIAL_COMPLETION

and the read receipt is not deleted.

Has anyone got round this problem?

I use IOLO spyware, firewall and antivirus.

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.

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.

Computer running XP and emails read in Outlook Express;

However, on checking the recycle bin I note that there are items in there from the OE
 
I have been checking my recycle bin  and have done a' compact 'of the OE but it seems that the compacting sends things to the recycle bin?
 
What should happen if the computer asks for the  OE to be compacted? where does it send the compact?
 
I am having to go through the recycle bin line by line to see what I can safely completely delete but also when I try to restore an item it seems to  make a duplicate in the recycle bin !!

Answer:monitoring if emails are read?

http://www.uncc.edu/sysdev/HowTos/Outlook/Receipts.htm

Delivery and Read Receipts are the notices that Outlook sends you whenever an email you send has been delivered to, and read by, the recipient. This option to receive these receipts can be applied to individual emails, or globally, so that you receive a receipt for every email that you send. While you might think this would clutter your Inbox with receipts, the truth is that you can configure Outlook to efficiently manage the way receipts are handled.

Anyone know a way that an personal/private email could be sent, read, but not able to forwarded the email to other computers. A program that would stop sensitive email content from being fowarded but could be read by the original receiptent and would not be blocked ( i.e. blocked by virus detection software etc.) would be handy indeed. That way I could email info about my family etc. without the worry of the email being passed on. Is there a way?
Thanks

Hi guys,

Whenever I use Outlook Express (v5.0.5 for the Mac) to read my email offline, it will try to dial out if there happens to be a URL for a graphic contained within the message somewhere. This makes it almost useless to me if I'm talking on the phone and want to review an email (I only have one phone line and no broadband connection). I have recently switched to OE from Eudora, and there was a way to disable this behavior in Eudora, but I can't find any setting for this in OE (and I've looked in every menu).

So, is there any way to force this behavior (i.e., only fetch images while connected) or should I dump OE? Also, if I do dump OE, which email app would you recommend? I switched to OE because Eudora couldn't handle complex HTML as well as OE.

I'd prefer to keep OE if I can remedy this behavior.
///Dave
 

Answer:Can't read emails offline with OE 5.0.5 (Mac)

I think (not positive since I'm not at all familiar with Macs) the only way to fix the problem is to change your dialup preferences in Internet Explorer (OE uses the same preferences). You'd have to go to IE>Tools>Internet Options>Connections and check "Never dial a connection." That would also mean you'll have to connect to your ISP manually every time instead of having IE or OE initiate the connection when they're opened.

Answer:Can't read attachments from emails

Each attachment should only be opened in the software package that created it.

For instance, a .doc attachment would open in Word, or Open Office or Wordpad.

An .xls attachment needs Excel or open office.

A .jpg needs to be opened with any image editor.

If you use notepad or similar, then you will see pages of garbage text.

Please tell us what the full name of the attachment is, and what software you are using to open it with.

Hello, I have my old Mail file on one computer and no longer have access to the same notes db. I need to move my files to another computer and access them. Also read me, that file doesn't work correct
 

Answer:How can I read my old emails from another laptop?

It is challenging, but doable. Both the new and the old systems must use the same email client program. You then find the location of the files and drop the old email into the proper location on the new pc.

I can document only Thunderbird (TB) but it will serve to give you a starting point.
The TB data is stored at:

c:\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird\Profiles\xxx.default\Mail\xxxemailServerDomain\ -here-

Microsoft seems to be making even more "improvements" to Hotmail, so maybe your current problem is, like highway construction, just a "temporary inconvenience."

To make sure that it is not something in your Firefox configuration have you tested with another browser? Or with Firefox's Safe mode?
