Outlook Delivery Receipt Prob.

  SABRE 09:09 09 Feb 05

On occasional e-mails I do like to know that they have been delivered (bit like Post Office recorded delivery really). Before sending I go into 'Options' and tick 'Request Outlook Delivery Receipt'. However, I am not getting any notification of delivery. I sent a test one to myself and this doesn't work. Any ideas?

.....but it is delivery receipt that I am after, not a read receipt. Your prog. does not seem to offer that.

Understood. I think you'll find you can't do that on the Internet. Outlook is really intended to be used on Intranet networks although it works on the Internet, features like mail delivery receipt don't work if you use Outlook on the Internet.

I've tried sending myself an email at work here and the Delivery Receipt works fine on our large Intranet system.

I don't know of any program that would allow you to do that, because of the mechanics of the Internet won't accept receipting, hopefully someone will contradict me.

....Octal. I know what your saying. From the deepest depths of my memory I seem to recall this prob. before and your answer is right. Only works on INTRANET's.
Thanks for your time and trouble.
