    When I send a message in Outlook 2007, the icon that shows in the Sent folder shows the Read Message icon before the person has opened it. I really don't want to request a receipt for every email I send. As it is, I have no idea whether someone has actually opened an email or not. Is there some kind of setting that will change this?

    Thank you.

    No, that is the way it has always functioned.

    Well, I am new to outlook, used Groupwise before (liked it better). This is but one of several things that Outlook forces you to put up with. It makes no sense to me that every thing I send shows as read whether it is or not. Why bother to even have the Read Message icon?
    Thank you for your help.
