Many email client programs such as outlook allow you to request delivery or read receipt. If you choose to do that, you will get a message noticing you that your message has been delivered or read by the recipient.

Good to see U Strawberry after a long time. U look different.

About tracking your email, if you just google your question (I tried), you will get a lot of replies to similar question. But, I am not sure how appropriate or reliable are they. I have not done any thing like this before.

Best way is to ask the other person to reply back or make a call and ask if they received the email. With hotmail, many emails go to 'junk box' and is never seen by the recipient.

as bioforum already pointed out, you can ask for a request, however, it will depend on the recipient whether they want to send the confirmation or not. i believe the best way to do it is ask directly.

I have tried one of things that came up on google years ago. It worked perfectly. I unfortunately don't recall what the site was, but you can get 10 free trial emails that tell you when somebody reads it/deletes it/ect. Hopefully it still is out there somewhere.

There is the website www.didtheyreadit.com that allows to track email but it is not free (~ 50$/year) But you can try it for free for one month (if I remember !)

Even this system is not waterproof: if the recipient chooses not to click YES on the confirmation you ask then you still wouldnt know it they saw it, but offcourse its a good way.

I am not sure if it is still possible to use gmail in outlook?
I know you need to pay to install hotmail in outlook, dont know if it is the same with gmail.

The only real alternative is indeed a program like Biog said, but those cost money.

If you don't know it, then ask it! Better to ask and look foolish to some than not ask and stay stupid.

I find that an easy way to ask people whether they got an e-mail without sounding pushy is to blame technology. When you get tired of waiting, send an e-mail along these lines:

"I've been having a little trouble with my e-mail client lately, and I just wanted to check whether you got the e-mail I sent you (enter date here), regarding (quick synopsis of prior e-mail). If not, I'll gladly resend it. Please let me know."

It tends to work great for reminding people to answer you, without coming off as a nag.

strawberry, it might be because the person's email address has some problem or s/he's made it so that all emails to the first address is forwarded to the second address and second address failed or something like that. U can jst give a call and confirm. If U really doubt something is fishy, there are some few (but unreliable and not recommendable) ways to trace the emails which will just put ur relation into more strain because it may false report.

Take care. Just give a call or something.

We can send emails with ColdFusion using cfmail tag, but we do not have a direct way to track whether an email has been read/opened by the recipient or not. We can do this using some indirect way mentioned below.

While developing an email functionality with cfmail, we can include one 1X1 px image in the mail body using <img src="". Instead of providing the path of the image for src directly, we can provide the path of one CFM template present on the server. The URL should contain one random number as URL parameter created using CreateUUID() function to uniquely identify each server request when the email is opened. In the CFM template we can render the 1X1 px image using cfcontent and also we can run an update query to set the email status flag to "Read".

Sample Code:

<cfmail from="from@mindfiresolutions.com" to="to@mindfiresolutions.com" subject="test subject" server="mailServerIP" type="text/html">
<img src="http://www.testsite....ID=#CreateUUID()#">
Email Text
</cfmail>

Hope this would add some value.
