    Mail.app question
    I am a student aid for the tech admin at our school and he asked me to research and find a solution to the problem he has. He works almost exclusively with macs at my school and his wife uses a PC at home (but he has a really nice 17in PB he uses). Anyway, he said his wife has outlook set up so that when she sends an e-mail out and the person the message is going to looks at it she gets a verification that the e-mail was looked at.

    Here is a hypothetical situation: She sends an e-mail that states that the prices are going up buy 8%. When the receiving party gets the e-mail she gets a verification that the e-mail has been looked at. This is very important to her because that keeps the buyers from lying and saying that they did not get an e-mail about the price increase.

    So my question is: Is there a way to do this in Mail? Or maybe a plugin or something? Maybe another e-mail client for mac does this?

    The reason i ask is because he got his wife to switch to using a mac but she really, really, really needs that feature in mail...or another mail application for OSX?

    Thanks

    this might help in Terminal...
    Had a hard time finding anything else. Most suggested another email client for Mac...possibly Thunderbird, Eudora, Mac versions of Entourage...

    I can tell you later, in chat or something, Im not the type to talk about other stuff like that online. but IU can tell you it was a huge mis understanding, then a few people went into
    "stick up their **** mode"(that was for those of you in the uk
    a long time ago, it was me, eric, and a few inactive members. I worked my fingers to the bone, it was me and eric for a while, then things started changing and I guess it got to his head, I dunno. we can talk later in ichat, but for now, I have to do some drawing 2 homework.
