Ihave been on tech support all day regarding this problem, all has shifted to the other.
Here goes: All I am looking for is a read receipt for emails that I send. I went into tools, options, receipts, under the heading of requesting read receipt, I checked this box
then under heading returning read receipts I marked always send a read receipt. That is all the boxes I have marked. Still does not work when I email to my friends. I can email myself and I will receive a read receipt. What am I doing wrong,

If they choose not to respond to the read receipt, they don't have to. Are you sure that your recipients are responding?

On the Receipts tab> Returning Read Receipts> tick the radio button:
Notify me for each read receipt request
See if you are notified for read receipt when you send one to yourself.

that works, it brings up a box and you click yes or no, but i thought when i clicked, always send read receipt ,it would automatically send one back to me.

I think it is working. Like I said, if they choose to to respond, they don't have to. Also some email programs don't have this option.

i send/recieve a ton of funstuff email and wouldn't consider requiring a reciept for every piece i send.

i've got a few friends that use the reciept thingy and i don't like it for email unless there's a big time reson for requiring the reciept, like sending a resume, business proposal, an inquiry about a purchase, wondering where the package is, etc.

To be honest, I don't know unless the read receipt shows up as an attachment in their email program. I know that at one time AVG scanned email arrived to the email recipients with a blank attachment caused by the notice from AVG that the email was scanned before being sent. Maybe someone else knows.

Most or all businesses I deal with automatically block read receipts, just as I do here.

The choice as to you getting a receipt when you have one requested is the recipients choice, not yours.

If their system blocks the read receipt response, there is nothing you can do about it your end.

i don't see any attachment for the reciept, just a block to check, yes/no

I don't either, I just meant that maybe their ISP or email program may be displaying the empty attachment instead of the read receipt.
