  2. Click on ‘Tools’ from the menu.
  3. Check the box saying ‘Request Read Receipt’.request read receipt mail
  4. Send the message normally.
  5. When your contact receives the email you sent, he will be asked to confirm that he agrees to you receiving the receipt, and that’s it.

Keep in mind there is nothing you can do if your contacts don’t agree to send you a read receipt.

As Microsoft explains:

A read receipt confirms that your message was opened. In Outlook, the message recipient can decline to send read receipts. There are other scenarios where read receipts are not sent, such as if the recipient’s email program doesn’t support read receipts. There is no way to force a recipient to send a read receipt.

Now you know when people open and read your emails.
