Running WinServ2012R2 with Access and Outlook 2016.
Using job scheduler and macros/VBA to send out automated reports via email. Messages are going out fine....but now I want to see who's actually reading them and who's ignoring them.
Outlook profile on the machine has read-receipt-requested as a default. Access is sending the messages out via EmailDatabaseObject and/or SendObject....and it's not picking up that profile setting. Instead, the sent messages have the tracking options (delivery/read receipt) greyed out.
Any way to fix/enable it? If not, we'll live....but it would have been nice.
The Access/Outlook "break" might even be by design. I noticed that Access macros will still run even if Outlook is NOT open. The messages will just queue up in the Outbox and will go out whenever Outlook gets re-opened.
