    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
    @aol.com>;

    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 ?
