I was wondering, is there a way to send an email that will notify you when read? I mean couldnt I include some script that would do this, possibly over my webspace? Oh lets take hotmail to hotmail messages for starters. By the way: Offcourse one could ad a link but it isnt said that the link will be clicked and its kinda odd. -CProgrammer

Theres a few ways.

#1, an image.
< img src="www.yourpage.com/yourcounterscript?id=Myuniqueidwhichisusuallyanumber" width = 0 height = 0 >

#2, Frames

< frame src = "www.yourpage.com/yourcountersciprt?id=id" width = "0%" >

And maybe scripts, but those are disabled by defult.

From,
Nice coder

Spammers have used those techniques for some time I think. Outlook Express blocks loading of images etc now to prevent that method from working.
There's no foolproof way as far as I know.
Maybe implement or use that feature where you can request a return recipt. Don't know much about it sorry.

Hmm thanks choice number one sounds great.
However if I link 'img' to a script is that allowed? Does the script then have to send some image information or is there just no real image?
