Request a read receipt in Yahoo Mail

When you send an email from Yahoo Mail, you may sometimes want to know if the email recipient has received your emails, namely by requesting a read receipt, a feature most desktop email programs offer. This read receipts tutorial will be updated as Yahoo updates its service with any features relevant to read receipts and/or delivery receipts.

Request a read receipt from Yahoo Mail

Always request a read receiptThe short answer is that, unfortunately, Yahoo Mail does not currently support read receipts. This only applies to emails you send from Yahoo Mail itself, inside a web browser; in other words, you can request a read receipt for emails sent from your Yahoo email account, but this part needs to be done from an email application like Microsoft Outlook, Thunderbird, Windows Live Mail, or Mac Mail (among others). The following tutorials explain how to add your Yahoo Mail account inside each of them, so that you can send emails using your Yahoo account, and request receipts:

Once you have added your Yahoo Mail account inside the email program of your choice, simply send emails for which you require a read receipt from that email program; the read receipt notification will come back, delivered as a regular email, to your Yahoo Mail account. This workaround allows you to monitor read notifications from within Yahoo. Since most of us do not require read receipts for all emails, this should be a feasible option until the Yahoo Mail team decides to add read receipt functionality in the Free Yahoo Mail service and/or Yahoo Mail Plus, the feature-enhanced, paid version of Yahoo Mail.

Stay tuned for more: as soon as Yahoo Mail enables read or delivery receipts for webmail access to the service, we will update this tutorial.
