    Oh. How do you do that then? I thought that was only something you could do at work...not on normal emails from home.

    Well, you can do it in Outlook, and possibly in other email clients as well. The difference is that you get a popup box asking the recepient whether he/she wants to return a read receipt.
    I actually seem to prefer that rather than having a read receipt sent as soon as I open an email...which is what MSGTAG does.

    In Outlook, you click the Options button on the toolbar when composing a new message, and there is a checkbox for Request a Read Receipt in there.
    :)

    ...in a lot of cases, yes. But I can think of several occasions when it could be extremely useful.

    Wow, that's one scary app. I don't understand how it works, though. Is there any way at all I can "block" this from working as a recipient of a tagged email?

    Sounded good for a minute, Teddy, but now it's sounding evil. Thanks for the warning, coathanger
