Outlook - read receipt - how to set?

Using Outlook, not Outlook Express.

Fast way to set read receipt?
Now I save email, go to sent, rightclick, options, read receipt.
Is there a faster way, from inside email?

If you're using Outlook XP, try this:

Click on "Tools"
Click on "Options"
On the "Preferences tab" select "Email Options"
Select "Tracking Options"
Check the box that says "For All Messages I send request: Read receipt"

Hope this helps!

But if you are sending outside of the exchange environment, you probally will not get a read receipt back.

Is there a way to quickly set read receipt on emails, from time to time, ie without setting default as you suggest?

When composing, under View, no Options.
When composing, under Tools, have Options, is that what you mean?  But where to find read receipt?

What version of Outlook is it?

Under XP you should have a toolbar with "Send | "Accounts" | <attachment paperclip>| <address book>| <checknames>| <importance high> | <importance low>| <message flag> | OPTIONS

If you don't have this toolbar, you may need to repair Outlook. (Some of the buttons may be hidden due to the placement of the toolbar.)
