How do I prove an email has been delivered?

How can I prove that an email I sent has been received?
I sent an important document to a business, asking them to acknowledge receipt. To date, I have heard nothing from them. I wish to find out whether the document was delivered to their server. I am still awaiting a response from my ISP as to how I ask them to confirm the document was delivered, so I am asking the same question on two fronts here.
I haven't yet asked the recipient company, because I want to establish some facts before they turn round and say "What document? Sorry, we haven't received it", which is a possibility.
I'm afraid I forgot to mark the "inform me when received or read" markers when I sent the actual email - an oversight on my part.
