This is a sort of Apple to MS crossover question.

I'm new to both Mac and MS Office 2008 (Entourage) and need to get some kind of confirmation that the person I sent the email to has received it. I can't remember having any problem with this in a PC environment, but however much I click around the menus of Entourage I can't find this option.

Any ideas?

I don't know why they made it so complicated Aug 13, 2009

Here is a possible solution:

However, note that not all email programs support this "autoconfirm" feature, and that even if they do, it could be turned off.

yes, sure! Aug 13, 2009

When I receive any email with autoconfirmation feature I always suppress it.
I want to say that your software may work normally, and the problem is in your recipients.

Thanks for the solutio Aug 13, 2009

Daniel - yes it's definitely more complicated than in Outlook 2000 and 2003 which I used before becoming a proud owner of a beautiful aluminum machine... I'll set it up as soon as I get time.

Sergei - I am also one of those who suppress most of the time. In this case I'm getting a bit fed up with a solicitor not acknowledging receipt of emails I send (personal matter - buying a flat). As he's a bit older (even older than me) I'm hoping his IT skills aren't up to understanding you can do this....
