2 Steps to Check the Read Receipt Request of an Email without Sending the Receipt

Sometimes due to various inconvenience, you aren’t willing to send a read receipt. Virtually Outlook permits you to check if an email has a read receipt request without sending the receipt.

I often receive the messages which request read receipts. Actually in most situations, I am willing to send a read receipt back. However, sometimes it is not convenient to send it. For example, I receive this kind of email on my vacation. I wouldn’t like to send the read receipt at that time. Thus I hope there is a method to verify if there is a read receipt request or not in advance.

Procure a Formidable Repair Tool

Though we are considerably content with quantities of functions of Outlook, we are also bothered a lot by Outlook’s vulnerability. If you are a regular user of Outlook for a long time, you must have met various Outlook errors, some of which may even result in Outlook crashes. Under this circumstance, Outlook data will be in danger of loss. Therefore, it is greatly advisable to make backups at regular intervals. If backups failed when restoring Outlook data, you can also resort to third party software. Thus I also suggest that users should get hold of a PST repair tool that is mighty enough to extract maximum Outlook data, such as DataNumen Outlook Repair.
