Hi,

Get read receptiant confirmation of a mail sent into a txt file.
Say i sent a mail to 100 users. 1 single mail all are in the To or CC or BCC ar all 3 places. Can i get the names of the users into a txt file saved in the D drive with the subject as the txt file name

Once the user opens the mail i need this txt file to be filled with the confirmations. So i know at any given point who all have read my mail.

Hope a script is able to achieve this.

Any help is of great use.

Hi, Sharath.

Why go to all this effort instead of looking at the tracking tab in the message which already has all of this information?

1.  Open a message that you've sent.
2.  If you requested a receipt and have received at least one in return, then you'll see a an icon labeled "Tracking" next to the Message icon on the far left-hand side of the ribbon.  The tracking button will not appear though until at least one receipt comes back.  
3.  Click the tracking button to see who has received/read the message based on the receipts you've received.

No.  The mail is what generates the tracking.
