Entourage Read Receipt

1.0b1
11 June 2007

Notifies you when a sent email has been read.

Overview

Entourage Read Receipt notifies you when a sent email has been read.

Ever sent an email and wondered if it arrived? In this age of dodgy spam filters and abandoned email addresses, the disappearance of emails is a growing problem. Wouldn't it be good if there were some way of finding out?

Fortunately, some clever people have already thought of a solution: the Disposition-Notification-To (DNT) email header. What does this do? If you add this, invisibly, to your email message, any compliant email program will send you back an email to tell you the message has been received or read.

Note the word compliant there. Unfortunately, Entourage X and 2004 - unlike their Windows-based cousin, Outlook - don't have a facility for easily adding the DNT header to email messages, although you can configure any of your email accounts to add the header to every message you send out; they also ignore requests for read receipts in any incoming emails.

This is where this package of scripts comes in. Included is a script for detecting the DNT header in incoming messages and sending back a standards-compliant read receipt that includes both human and machine-readable notifications that you've received the message. There are also two scripts for adding the DNT header to your own outgoing messages: one that simply toggles the header on and off for each of your email accounts (if the account already has the DNT header it's removed, without affecting any other headers you might have; if the account doesn't yet have the DNT header, it's added); and one that lets you pick which accounts you want the headers added to.

Finally! (lol) I was looking and hoping for a read receipt feature with Entourage. Thanks so much for the person that wrote the scripts. It was easy to set up, and it does work with Entourage 2004. Great Job!!

Hi Am I correct in assuming that if I'm in Entourage and toggle the read receipt script to be "on", then for each mail that I send thereafter, a read receipt request will automatically be sent too? And, if yes, if I want to control which sent messages will be sent with this request, then I need to toggle the script ON and OFF before I send each message? Sorry if it's a dumb question but this feature is important to me with some people that I send mails to, but I don't want to infuriate everyone I send a mail to with a read receipt request. Thanks, Mike Brand new to Mac but loving it so far

Nicely Done! This is so convenient now for my wife and I to utilize Delivery/Read Receipts. Bravo to all that have contributed to the instructions and execution scripts as well!
