What do you use to send emails? Do you use a client application, like Thunderbird, or Outlook, or do you go to a website, like Hotmail or GMail?

This determines if you are able to request a reading confirmation of an email. Only some clients offer this functionality.

Either way, even if you are able to use this feature, please note that the recipient gets to *choose* if they want to send you back a notification. If they don't want to let you know that they've read the email, they will click "no" and you will not receive a notification.

I didn't get an answer from the above question, why not???

There must be some way to flag an outgoing email, or get a flag or notice that the recipient has read your email. Just want to know that they have received it.
