in my email program it looks like I can ask for either a read receipt or a delivered receipt ( of the email) ... how ever when I do try for those I get nothing back . am I doing something wrong? I even sent to myself etc and it doesn't ask for a read notification.

RE: outlook 2013 mail

Hi big al 41,

Activating Mail Tracking

"You probably know about the read receipt feature of Outlook that confirms when the particular mail was delivered to the recipient and whether it was viewed by him. To enable the option, navigate to Tracking option in the Mail Settings and put a check against the option you would like to activate. You can select Delivery receipt confirming the message was delivered to the recipient�s e-mail server and Read receipt confirming the recipient viewed the message."

Please see link provided,
