In Outlook '97 emails had tracking tabs on the email windows. Outlook 2002 doesn't seem to have these. Is there another form of tracking in Outlook 2002? Is there a way of 'showing' the tracking tabs as per Outlook '97. Or am I going completely barmy ans imagining things!

The only way to track emails is through Exchange Server.  Do you have Exchange Server in either case?

Copied from OL2002 help.

Review tracking results and voting responses
Open the original message you are tracking. This message is usually located in the Sent Items folder.
Click the Tracking tab.
Note   By default, responses that do not contain comments are recorded in the original message, and responses that contain comments are kept in the Inbox. You can have Microsoft Outlook automatically delete the blank responses.

To add onto slink's comment, the tracking tab does not show until a "MDN" is received by Outlook.  Outside of that, this feature does not require the use of an Exchange server.


PS -

MDN = Message Delivery Notification.
