Hello Experts,

I have been asked to send out an email to employees, that requires sort of a return receipt to confirm they have read it.

But it needs to be more than just a common read receipt, I need something that forces the reader to affirmatively reply. More than simply a read receipt.

Is this possible?

I'm using Exchange 2003, and I sending it using 'Outlook 2010

You can get common read receipt if you set permission in his / her outlook for the same. But it is not possible "to be more than just a common read receipt, I need something that forces the reader to affirmatively reply. More than simply a read receipt." in outlook.

Following is the exact wording I was sent....so the answer to the following is 'No"?

.  I have been asked to ask for a return receipt to confirm that they’ve read the document. I’ve used Microsoft Outlook before to do this. It’s more than confirmation that they have received and opened the email. It’s something that the reader has to do affirmatively to reply. …. Do you know what I’m referring to?

In Outlook 2010:

1) Compose your message
2) Before sending it, go to the Options tab on the Ribbon
3) In the Tracking section, select the desired option under 'Use voting buttons'
