In the options of a new mail message, you can request a read receipt. I would like to create a button with this VB code behind.

I tried the following code, but something is missing. Who can help me out?

Sub Enable_Tracking()

Dim e1 As Outlook.MailItem
e1.ReadReceiptRequested = True

End Sub

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 use Outlook Express for my email system.

As a result of sending out some emails with a 'Request Read Receipt' , I have had a few replies which give a blank returned email but an attachment which is a 'Notepad' file of gobbledegook !
In the attachment line , it gives something like " Read_bladdy blah.txt(184 bytes)"
This is instead of the usual

This is a receipt for the mail you sent to
"x y z etc " <x y z a b c>;

This receipt verifies that the message has been displayed on the recipient's computer at 09/04/2012 22:09
Can anyone shed any light on why I am getting an attached Notepad file which is unreadable on some replies from some people ? Can they be using , say , Outlook as their email system ?

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..."

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.

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?

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

Anyway, did you happen to back them up to CD or something?

I mean, anything written to CD becomes read-only, even after you copy it back.

So, I would close Outlook. Do a search for *.PST files. Then ctrl+a and right-click and remove any read-only property on them.

Then try opening again.

Also, you cannot access PST files from two PCs AT THE SAME TIME. So if you're trying something like that, forget it.

We have a tracking problem that I am unable to resolve. We have a user that needs to keep track of users that read training related email. She sends out to a server based distribution list of around 90 people and requests read receipts. When you go into the sent items and look at the tracking tab, it only shows the group distribution list name and no other information, not even a time stamp. I believe she even redirects the read receipts into a separate folder for easier tracking. It was working where all the users were listed and showed the time stamp of when it was read, but no more. We have all the latest service packs installed on the Exchange server and the workstations. Our one Exchange 2000 server has been rebooted and seems to be running fine except for the memory leak that Store.exe has that requires a reboot about once a week. The re-boot seems to work better then just restarting store itself.

I doubt this question has been posted before, however, I apologise if it has.

I have absolutely no VBA programming experience, however, have heard of a number of useful macros that can be created using them.

I am using Outlook 2002. I work in a team of 10 and we are required action requests from customers as and when they come in. This normally works on a first come first served basis, where we assign our names to the e-mail to show that we are dealing with it. The only problem is, I have the slowest of computers and cant seem to keep up with my colleagues!

I want to create a macro (to which I have received permission from manager already), that would carry out the below; ever time I click on the unread e-mail and then press the MACRO BUTTON (which I will drag onto my toolbar):

1) flag the e-mail to follow up (no deadline)
2) mark as read
3) and ADD the words "Shaz is dealing with -" on the subject line, BEFORE the rest of the subject line details.
4) automatically saves it, therefore, everyone will be able to see it straight away, and know that I am dealing with it

I am not very fast with computers and this will save me alot of time. As mentioned earlier, my manager has sympathised with my situation, therefore, has allowed me to do this.

I would be so grateful for your help.

Thank you

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.)

Am running Win XP Pro along with Office XP SP2. Just went to the Office XP update site and installed the Excel and Word 2002 Update Oct.16 2002, and the Outlook 2002 Update Jan 22 2002.

Word and Excel still work fine, but Outlook will only start in safe mode, hanging at the splash screen if started normally. I tried the trick of renaming the *.dat files noted in some of the bulletin boards, but tis did not help.

I then un-installed Office XP and reinstalled it to SP2 level without the three patches noted above. Outlook still refuses to start normally.

I seem to recall reading somewhere that there is a "patch to patch the patch" for this problem, but can't seem to find the article again. Have also unsuccessfully searched the web and am now truly stuck!

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!!!

Answer:Outlook 2003 - unauthorized receipt sent

In Outlook:

Tools - Options - Preferences - Email Options - Tracking Options.

Select Never send a response.

However, spammers never check their inbox anyway. They create one, send the spam and move on. They rely on people clicking on web links in the spam for a paying response.

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.

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.

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.

The most common error message I receive is;
Error number 0x800ccc6a - 451 transient Brightmail processing error

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 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 inbox. When it does eventually arrive it syncs almost immediately with his PC reinforcing the view that the problem lies with

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 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 Slow receipt of email and Outlook error.

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.

Hi everyone,

At work we have outlook 2003 and I cannot upgrade that computer, at home I have recently upgraded to outlook 2007 but it left me with a little problem.

I use tasks to delegate jobs out to my team and I have it set up so categories are in fact their names. I used to send task requests with the name of the employee in the category section and when it arrived in the work inbox someone would accept the task and it would immediately go into that particular employees task category.

Now I have 2007 Outlook and although I have set categories up as they used to be (employee names) the task request gets accepted (at work) and instead of going under the employee name it goes into it's own category with no specific category.

Can anyone tell me (short of going back to outlook 2003) how to solve this issue?

OS: XP home

I recently re-installed my entire computer, incl. MS Office 2002.
When restoring the .pst files, something went wrong. Maybe I needed to re-install more than just .pst files, maybe it screwed up because I renamed the back-up files?

Either way, the problem is that the Contact folder is not displayed in the Outlook Address Book, and I cannot manage to make it so.
I tried the following:
- Right-clicking the Contacts folder, Properties, Outlook Address Book tab. The checkbox "Show this folder as an e-mail Address Book" is greyed out, so I cannot check it.
- Tools, E-mail accounts, View or change existing directories or address books. Outlook Address Book - MAPI is listed (as only one). When pressing Change..., I get an error message: "This E-mail account cannot be configured. Please run Outlook and choose this profile before attempting to make changes to it." There is only one profile (I had 2 before re-installation, but no longer needed the second).
If I try to Add... an Additional Outlook Address Book, or a Personal Address Book, I get the error message "The account you have added is not fully configured. It might not work properly until re-configured correctly."

Nice, but how to re-configure it correctly??? I prefer not having to re-install the program...

I tried to Remove the listed Outlook Address Book, but then could still not Add... one (same error message), so the originally listed one re-appeared.

What can I do?

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:10 outlook.exe processes, outlook 2002 on XP home edition with SP1.

Not sure how it got that way without more information but what happens if you simply end those processes.

Then you can open it up again and see if it starts replicating itself. There may be more going on behind the scenes that you are not aware of yet. This might be a good initial test to try.

I'm trying to read the e-mails from my old Windows 98 computer on my current Windows XP computer but I haven't been able to figure out how to successfully do this. The e-mail client on the Windows 98 machine was Outlook Express 6 and the one on my current XP computer is Outlook 2002.

I followed the instructions listed on the Microsoft support site (Article ID: 270670) for backing up the data from Outlook Express which left me with a folder of .dbx files (Inbox.dbx, Drafts.dbx etc) which I then burned onto a CD and transferred over to my XP computer. My problem is that now that I've done that I'm not sure how to get Outlook 2002 to import that folder of .dbx files or recognize it. I googled it but didn't find any helpful results other than links to expensive conversion programs. So could anyone here offer any help on the matter? Thanks in advance.

Answer:How do I import messages from Outlook Express 6 into Outlook 2002?

Update: I realized that Outlook can't open the .dbx files and that Outlook Express has to export them to Outlook. However, when I tried this it only exported the messages in my "Sent" folder and none of the messages in any of the other folders, including Inbox.dbx which is about 500MB in size so I know the messages are in there. Any advice on what to do next?

Answer:Sending Error in Outlook 2002 and Outlook Express

Actually, the email is not configured correctly. 550 errors are relaying errors, meaning you are either using an SMTP server not allowed by your ISP, or their SMTP server is having problems. Chances are, its the first scenario. In most cases, you must use your ISP's smtp server.

In outlook 2007, use File - Impor and Export - Import from another program or file - Personal Folder file (.pst).

Then you point it at a copy of the PST from your old 2002 version of Outlook, copy it over on a CD or DVD or via a network if connected (it will be a large file usually).

You can tell it to not create duplicates etc as you want.

I have set the options so that the Outlook Today page is supposed to begin when Outlook 2002 is started. Instead it always opens in the inbox.

Can anyone tell me how to copy contacts from Outlook 2003 to Outlook 2002 (XP).An error message tells me the .pst files are not compatable

Answer:Outlook 2003 Contacts to Outlook 2002 (XP)

I am not sure but you could try using the export/import wizard and exporting the file as a .csv file from outlook 2003 and then importing it into 2002.

I have just completed along assignment abroad and handed back the notebook to the client, after backing up all necessary files.I was running Outlook 2002/XP and synchronising with my HP Ipaq 4150, EXCEPT for email/Inbox.I am now setting up my new notebook back in the UK and have installed the MS Office 2003 upgrade.Question: can I just transfer my Outlook.PST file and overwrite the default one set up my Office 2003? I ask because I was running Office 2003 abroad, but there were problems with Outlook 2003, so I reverted to Outlook 2002/XP.Or, should I set up Outlook 2002/XP on my wife's computer, and then export my Outlook.PST data in another acceptable format?Regards,Kibo Kid
