    Sounds to me like you're sending a lot of emails to people you don't know. Are we Spamming perhaps?

    With the new CAN-SPAM Act of 2003 going into effect 1/1/2004... I STRONGLY suggest against spamming activities if this is what you're up to. Penalties are severe.

    One way to do what you want is to embed script into the email. BUT... doing this will most likely make your email a high point target for Spam Filters. This means far fewer of your emails will make it to your recipients. Also... programs such as Norton Anti-virus will prevent your email scripts from running anyway.

    Another way is to embed an image tag, using an ASP file on your sever as the image "SRC". This again has the same drawbacks... to a lesser degree.

    I think I found some code that will help you:


    ------>> 'This line here sets the Read receipt, you must enter and email address
    objCDO.Value("Disposition-Notification-To") = "someone@receiptto.com" <<-----


    Hope this helps. I tried it an it worked grerat..

    OK... Something else... the code above will give you the popup return receipt form but you never get the return receipt back in email.. any suggestions?
