Why is there a delivery report on all emails from a blackberry to my email address?

Last Modified: 2008-12-16
One of my friends gets a delivery report back from my ISP every time she sends me email from her blackberry.  No one else seems to get the delivery report when they email, even if they, too, mail from their blackberries.  And my friend doesn't get it for any other emails she sends.  So it seems to be specific to her blackberry and my ISP.  It isn't hurting anything, but I don't understand why it is happening.  Can anyone help?

Here is the delivery report (with email addresses obscured).  If you need unobscured information, let me know.

Thanks for any help!

I'm not actually sure if how her BB is setup.  She doesn't have it as part of a work environment, so I'm guessing not BES.  In any case, since she can send email via her BB to other addresses without getting the delivery receipt, I'm assuming it is something between BB and my ISP.  Would wiping and reactivating her BB really address that?

Hard to be sure, but it is probably going to be easier than trying to get an answer out of the ISP.
backup all data first via the BB desktop manager 4.2 SP2.

I hope this helps !

some service books may be corrupted.  She may need to delete some service books and get Blackberry support to resend the books to her device.


Thanks for your comments!  I don't know if that was indeed the problem -- seemed like more of a hassle to reset the blackberry than to just deal with the odd emails, but I just accepted the answer to give you points for your efforts!  Thanks.
