    I know you all know about the whole "This reciepient wants a notification of recieve. Would you like to send this notification?"

    I accedentally chose Yes and I didn't want that. Now it is trying to send a notification and I don't know where to look to cancel it because the thing is that currently, it is trying to send an out notification on a mail account that the smtp has been down for quite sometime because it is my school's account (they are still fixing it up because of spam control and all).

    Any help would be greatly appreaciated as to fixing this problem. I have tried deleting the e-mail, taking off the account and then re-adding it after restarting the outlook program and nothing. Thanks in advance!

    If you are talking about read receipts, which I think you are, you need to turn them off within your options.

    From Outlook, click the Tools menu -> Options
    On the Preferences tab, select E-mail Options, then Tracking Options.
    On the bottom of that menu, choose to ask or never send.

    Does that help?
