This sounds like you are refering to the buttons in Outlook.
Are you connected to an Exchange server?
If so, which version of Exchange and Outlook are you using? If Outlook 2003, is it in cached mode?
Any group policy in place that could be disabling this feature?

It is one of the Outlook modes that disables that function but I cannot remember which.

It's the settings in Outlook 2000 under Tools > Options > Email Options > Tracking Options. I'm connected to Exchange 2000.  No group policies.

well in order for it to be enabled on the client,, it has to be enabled on the exchange server....you do this by opening exchange system manager, open servers, rightclick on your exchange server, choose properties.... then simply check "enable message tracking"

OK,,, i believe everyone is talking about two completely different things here,,, "Message tracking" that you turn on on the general tab of the exchange server named "enable message tracking" has nothing to do with the "tracking options" located at Outlook 2000 under Tools > Options > Email Options > Tracking Options.  I know they are named similarly but they have nothing to do with each other.  The one you turn on on the outlook client at:

"Outlook 2000 under Tools > Options > Email Options > Tracking Options"  is for read/delivery receipts.

The one on the general tab of the server is for the "Message tracking center" on the exchange server.

Again, in order for read/delivery receipts to be enabled on the outlook client it has to be enabled... i think in your situation what has happened is read/delivery reports have been disabled.... here is how you check this:

1.  open the exchange system manager.
2.  go to global settings.
3.  go to Internet message format.
4.  rightclick on the default format for you organization and choose properties.
5.  go to the advanced tab
6.  see if "allow delivery reports" and "allow non-delivery reports" are selected

Do you have any GPOs in place?  If so one GPO might be disabling this.  From an XP box the command to see GPOs in effect for you is gpresult.  You can run this from command line.
