Hi

Not sure if this can be done. If I send a e-mail as soon as they open the e-mail I would receive an e-mail that they opened my e-mail. They could open it and tell me no they received it.

Thanks

Greetings, RVL !

You can request a return receipt when you send the email.  But recipient has the option to return or not return the receipt.

RVL,

You can use DidTheyReadIt service to determine if recipient has read the email

But some users raise privacy concerns.
