What is 'Request Read Notification'?

Request Read Notification or Return receipt is a feature by which you can get an acknowledgement (email) when the recipient reads the email that you have sent. To get a return receipt, click on 'Read Notification'.

When the recipient opens your email, he/she gets a pop up saying: ‘The message sender has requested a response to indicate that you have read this message. Would you like to send a receipt?’ Yes | No.

You get a message (example): ‘This is a receipt for the mail you sent to <source@rediffmail.com> at 10/10/2006 12.15pm. This receipt verifies that the message has been displayed on the recipients computer at 10/10/2006 12.15pm’.

In case the receiver chooses ‘No’, then you will not receive the receipt.

Please note that when you ask for a return read notification and the receiver reads your mail on a web based email client, this function cannot be performed. Return receipt is only possible in email clients like Outlook Express, Netscape, Eudora etc.
