In Outlook 2000 - is there a way that I can send an e-mail and set it up so I know if I have gotten a response to that particular e-mail? Would the Rules Wizard be able to help me?

The only thing I can think of is what you suggested.  You can use the rule wizard and
1:Check messages when they arrive next
2:Where my name is in the to box and(Reply Name)
  From people(From the Address you want to send to)
  With specific words in the subject(re:yoursubject)
3:Play sound or print or whatever you want(ding!)

This may work but is extremely long for the task.
I know this won't work for all situations, such as, if the recipient decides to put a new subject in the subject window instead of just replying.
hope it helps though

A-Tek.  Can you be a little more descriptive in what you're asking for.  That's a pretty broad and open ended question.  Examples of what you're looking to accomplish.

Yoshi -
Thanks for your answer. I'm going to try it when I get to the office and see if it works. Basically - I just want a way to keep track of some e-mails I send out and see if some these e-mails get replies. Thanks Again.
