Usually when you are composing a message, you can add a request for a read receipt. Whether you actually receive a read receipt depends on the recipient's settings.

Bulk mail companies track message opens using other methods, such as embedding a transparent pixel in the message so that when you enable images, their server receives a request from your browser, which indicates that you must have viewed the message. I'm sure there are more sophisticated tricks as well.
