    read-receipt possible for yahoo mails

    hi
    i would like to send an email to someone and have its receipt confirmed. i have a yahoo account and would like a simple delivery confirmation type thing i could use. that's all i need just to know that it's been read.
    best if it's free!
    any recommendations?
    thank you

    E-mail services don't really have any sort of standards or co-operation, so an integrated read-receipt button on Yahoo (or any other) is unlikely -- as well as them all having to work together, it would take up server bandwidth and cause privacy problems. Webmail clients also disable Javascript.

    In terms of scripting, this would be easy to accomplish; all you would have to do is set up a script on your server that logs IP addresses and time, include a HTML <img> tag in your e-mail to request this script as an image, then wait for the victim to open the e-mail, request the image unknowingly and give away their time of reading the e-mail. That's as long as images aren't disabled.
