        Most of the other email servers have this option. It would be very helpful if Yahoo would add it as well. I've thought about switching to another service because of it.

        How many times do I get, 'No didn't receive your email' when it was sent to multiple addressees and they all got it. It's a cop out to say they didn't receive it so that they couldn't be bothered to respond. Really do need this feature. Most other email suppliers have it.

      • SallySally commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Please would you add a feature so that I know who has received or read the email that I've sent them.

      • T. RaeT. Rae commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        This is not invasive at all, it is a simple confirmation that the other party received their email, and it helps to make sure that servers and other tech aspects are acting accordingly.

      • NatalieNatalie commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I wonder how many people need to post about this and vote for it multiple times before we get this feature added. It cannot be that difficult to add. I wonder if Yahoo even looks at these posts. If it doesn't get any action, why do we bother posting here? The response of "thank you, [keep giving us feedback/vote" is obviously a generic response, which can be posted as a response without even reading the request. Come on, Yahoo.

        This would be a great feature! I work out of my home and need to know when my email has been read! how tough can this feature be to have??? I've heard that other email sites have it!!!

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I would like this feature added. I need to know that my messages are at least delivered. Knowing that they're read would be awesome. This should be an email by email feature, meaning it can be turned on and turned if if you don't want delivered and read receipts for every email you send. This is my personal email account, so I don't use it that often. But when I do, I need delivered and read receipts.

      • AndyAndy commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I too received the same email notification, however, no clue as to where to enable this new feature.

      • DebbieDebbie commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I got an email that says this was updated. How do I do it? I can't find it in my mail options? Where do I go to add it?

      • mateimatei commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I don't think is useful when you send about 20 email a day. Simply put, you don't have time to check wich one has been seen or not.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        This would be very helpful to know that my emails have been received and read. I may not get a reply back all the time but would like to know if it has been seen by the party to whom I sent it too... Thank You.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I need to mark my msgs as "read" by addressee too.

        I want to make sure that the mesage was read indead.

        Is it me or there is a feature that I can not find?

        This sould be a reqular feature of each email but the fact that I can not find it mens that either I cannot use this email or there is a glitch.

        It souds funny, but can I get any human response on this or other features?

        Thank you.

        it is very important to keep track of of any E mail, cause sometimes they appear to be sent while the recipient never receives any Mail !

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate
