Check if email has been read or not in Outlook (without tracking)

Hi -

If they have not put tracking or some 3rd party software is there any way that a user can tell if another user has opened their email (Within Outlook)- This is within the same Exchange organisation. I also have access to the specific mailbox in question which needs checking whether it read an email sent from another user. I said to my client it was possible without enabling the options, but maybe there are hidden properties or logs that i am not aware of.

AFAIK, here is no exchange mailbox log even with the Mailbox Auditing enabled for Unread and Read email.

This is the website that give you the official response from Microsoft:
you can adjust to the Exchange Server that you are running.

Look at this table: Mailbox actions logged by mailbox audit logging on the page above.

Hope that helps.
