Is there a way that I can have outlook automatically request a delivery confirmation on all of my outgoing messages so I know when the recipients got their mail?

    Hello ehensens,

    In Outlook 2003, go to Tools|Options.  On the Preferences tab, click Email Options.  In Email Options, click
    Tracking Options.  There, you can ask for read and/or delivery receipts by default.
