What tells you it's sending return receipts?
Authored by: NeutronMonk on Oct 26, '04 02:09:10PM

I set up a Hotmail account on my win box to test this- Outlook has the capability for requesting receipts. Sure enough- the return receipt address showed up in the "Previous Recipients" folder on my mac, and my win box went "ding"!

I could not reproduce this w/ Netscape 4.7 nor Exchange WebAccess receipts

Using Netscape 4.7 under Classic, the only e-mail client I have installed than can ask for return receipts, and the MS Exchange WebAccess I sent e-mails to myself asking for a receipt. Opened it in Mail. Nothing happened. Opened in Netscape 4.7 and agreed to send a receipt via a dialogue box. Received a return receipts downloaded both by Mail and Netscape.

So, return receipts at least those asked for by Netscape 4.7 and Exchange WebAccess are not sent by Mail.

There is a second kind of receipt, delivery receipts, for which Exchange WebAccess can ask for. These, however, are sent out by the mail server itself, accnowledging the existance and functioning of the e-mail account.
